Prepare for every long weekend through this 2017 Metro Manila weekend market guide we have for you!
Right when I got home from Bangkok, I immediately missed their night market scene where you can literally buy every single thing known to man. I remember running to the train station to catch the last train because I spent a little too long shopping and eating. It’s a good thing Manila has a bunch of weekend bazaars and markets that sell a wide array of food and items.
Here’s 10 but we added a few more just because we also loved them as much.
Where: Eton Centris, EDSA cor. Quezon Ave
When: Sundays, 6am – 2pm
I first heard about Sidcor Sunday Market through a friend who often went here for those early morning finds. Rather than going to the weekend markets in the South and in Makati, this market is a great place to be in the morning if you happen to live in the North. They have a wide array of plants and organic finds you’ll be sure to love.
Where: Terra 28th, Bonifacio Global City
When: Fridays, 4:30pm – 10pm
Here’s another place you can get your house plants from! Other than the greens, we heard the food here is something else.
Legazpi Sunday Market – Makati City
Where: Legazpi, V.A. Rufino Street, Legazpi Village, Makati City
When: Sundays, 8am – 2pm
I have always wanted to go to the Legazpi Sunday Market because I haven’t been there in a long time. I’ve heard the finds are really unique and the food is really good too!
Where: Greenfield District Central Park
When: Saturdays, 4pm – 12mn
Night markets are great for every nocturnal friend we have. Starting at 4pm, you can get your hands on amazing ice cream and have fun the rest of the night with gourmet food and drinks with the the company of your friends. Great bonding experience, really!
Salcedo Saturday Market – Makati
Where: Jaime C. Valesquez Park, Salcedo Village, Makati City
When: Saturdays, 6am – 2:30pm
Salcedo Saturday Market is a great place to be in if you happen to be strolling around Makati City’s parks. The mornings are calmer than the usual hustle and bustle of the working day so make sure to stop by and eat good food in this weekend market.
Where: Pionere Cor. Reliance St, Mandaluyong
When: Tuesday to Thursday, Sundays, 10am – 10pm
Fridays and Saturdays, 10am – 12am
Pinoeer Street Market has high regard for their gourmet food and market finds you can buy for your home. It’s not as pricey as other weekend markets plus they have varied cuisine choices so if you’re craving for a specific type of food, you got it.
Aani Weekend Market – Taguig
Where: FTI Complex, Palayan Rd, Taguig, Metro Manila
When: Saturdays and Sundays, 5am – 5pm
Aani Weekend market is a lot different from other weekend markets because while the others have thrift shops and are selling locally made products, Aani focuses on produce and freshly harvested fruits and vegetables. Giant tomatoes, anyone?
Mercato is home to great and new food. Have your cravings satisfied by both gourmet and street food here! Although you can definitely find some interesting things in many stalls.
Where: 25th street corner 7th avenue, BGC
When: Thursdays-Saturdays, 6pm – 3am
Where: Glorietta 4 Dolphin Park, Makati
When: Wednesdays-Fridays, 4pm – 3am
Where: 34th St and 8th Ave (Across MC Home Depot)
When: Fridays and Saturdays, 6pm – 3am
While Mercato Central has two locations, Midnight Mercato only has one. This market also is a popular place to hang out because of their delicious food and new tastes.
Where: Gng. Pilar Banzon cor. Elizalde, Parañaque
When: Saturdays, 7am – 2pm
Find yourself in Parañaque at 7am on a weekend with nowhere else to go? We gotchu.
Where: Eastwood City, Bagumbayan, Quezon City
When: Saturdays and Sundays, 11am – 10pm
Going around the Eastwood City Mall during the weekend is one of my favorite things to do because they have this food bazaar on the second floor. Not quite sure if it’s every weekend, but it’s definitely there more often than not. It’s a mix of local food and drink mixes like lemon ginger ale, and some amazing baked goods like yema cakes and artisan macarons.
Where: Shaw Blvd, Mandaluyong
When: Saturdays, starting 4pm
While Mandala Park is a beautiful place on its own and is open everyday, on some scheduled Saturdays they do host bazaars and thrift markets!
Where: Burgos Park, Bonifacio Global City
When: Scheduled, upcoming: April 28 & 29, May 26 & 27
I first heard of The Organic Market while browsing for metal straws! They have a wide selection of organic items and things to help you reduce your waste which is a good thing since this world needs all the help it can get! This weekend market isn’t regular but you’ll find their schedule on their Facebook page.
