Last year, I had the chance to visit the Salcedo Community Market in Makati City. My boss recommended we have breakfast here before I fly back to Davao City inthe afternoon.
It was a short ride to the weekend market from the place we were staying. I was very excited to finally visit the weekend market because, for one, I am very intrigued as to what products are being sold there.
Generally, I was very amused as to what I saw in the weekend market. In a nutshell, it is an upscale market where the vendors are not only Filipinos but also of other nationalities. The vendors are also very accommodating and kind.
So what can you buy here? A lot, though mostly food. Being a market, you can find the basic stuff you find in one like fruits and vegetables, meat products, and I think I saw some seafood products. There are also pastries, jarred food, local delicacies, and many more.
In terms of pricing, most products are very affordable though there are some that were quite expensive for me. As to the quality, I can say the products here are of good quality.
Since we were having breakfast here, I made a quick round at the weekend market to see what they have to offer for my first meal of the day. So here are two meals I had:
Chorizo Fried Rice (P100)
Japanese Pancakes (P20 each), the flavors I ordered were White Chocolate Chips and Peanut Butter
My tummy was very much satisfied after I had the two dishes, which were really good.
What I really loved about when we visited here was that it was not very crowded. There was a light crowd when we visited the Salcedo Community Market. Another thing that impressed me was the market was quite clean, trash bins were strategically placed around the place.
Overall, my first visit to the Salcedo Community Market was great! I had fun and my tummy was happy. I would definitely drop by here again if ever I’m in Metro Manila again.
Salcedo Community Market is located at Jaime C. Velasquez Park, Salcedo Village, Makati City, Metro Manila, PHL. It is open on Saturdays from 7am to 2pm.
