Legazpi market: a cultural bazaar

thanks to spot.ph for telling us what to do on a sunday in makati.

Every Sunday at the Legaspi Car Park (Legaspi corner Herrera Streets) is a bustling food haven and product fair where one could find just about everything weird, quirky, organic, delicious, entertaining, and uhhmm cultural!

There are a lot of foreigners selling food and other merchandise native to their own country. There is one particular stall that caught my attention because of their Samba drum beats. I think they were selling authentic leather sandals. Among the fave finds are the himalayan salt, quiche, and schuemli. Thank heavens for free tasting and non-coercive sales talk.

Refreshments of all kinds are sold. Here in this photo is N shelling out for some dalandan and lemonade. There are also stalls selling tea, fruit shakes, and coffee.

Native filipino rice cakes of various shapes and colors!

Dulong is actually Anchovy fry. This particular stall sells a variety of seafood pâté including Bangus (Milkfish) and Dulong.

The man cooking in the photo above is thai. And what is more quintessentially thai than Pad thai, which is what this stall is selling.

Pure himalayan salt. The stall owner claims that this salt can cure certain diseases since it contains a lot of essential micronutrients as it has not undergone chemical treatment and was obtained directly from the Himalayas.

Bottled honey with a wooden beehive frame behind it.

Quiches are pies composed primarily of eggs, milk and one or two savory ingredients as desired. Here we have, salmon, broccoli, mushroom and cheese. I bought a mini quiche, tuna with basil and cheese, and it was very very flavorful! No wonder a lot of people flock to this stall.

The market is full of chic and savvy shoppers like madame. 🙂

scented floating candles with visually soothing colors.

Every stall has something special and entirely unique about it. This one sells gourmet polvoron!
