From Wet Markets to Web Markets

As my wife and I were having our breakfast and purchasing fresh groceries recently at the Redhill Market, I spotted this interesting signboard from a fish monger in the market. Apparently Pan’s Fish offers fresh fish for sale (the kind you can cook) on its website and you can actually order them via e-commerce.

I believe they must be one of the first wet market stalls to be so proactive in encouraging online ordering. The cool thing is that if you can’t make it during the unearthly wet market opening hours, you can always get your catch of ikan kurau, salmon, mackerel, prawns and more online, 24 by 7.

Now all they need is a blog, a Facebook fan page, and a Twitter account….

    I guess that would make sense if you are in the restaurant business. They almost always get fish delivered anyway.

    Great article, I completely agree with your points.
