There is nothing more welcoming than spending a sunny day strolling around an open-air street market. If you are an enthusiast who likes to indulge in street markets, then you’d understand what I am saying. For those who are not, this is a sign for you to get out and explore some local street markets like these weekend markets in Makati.
Street markets are one of the most popular tourist spots in the Philippines due to the vast amount of quality goods you can purchase to take home and the fun you can have from just exploring even without buying anything. All of this can be experienced at the Salcedo Saturday Market and Legazpi Sunday Market.
Salcedo Saturday Market
From fresh fruits and vegetables to kitchenware and trinkets to ready-to-eat food, there is so much that you can buy from the numerous booths of the market. It is hard trying to decide where to spend your money.
After exploring the market for hours and filling our bags with all sorts of products, we called it a day. Despite the crowd and the array of stores present, health and safety protocols were still being observed. Lastly, the markets felt clean and well organized making the whole market visit a very pleasant experience. We’ll definitely be back!
