BAGUIO CITY, BENGUET—While Baguio is famously recognized as the summer capital of the Philippines, there’s one thing that it’s also known for–its night market. Beaming with yellow street lights at night, the long stretch of Harrison Road transforms into a busy street market that offers a wide variety of second-hand items–from bags, clothes, pullovers, shoes, and even souvenir items.

As you approach the nexus of  Perfecto Street, you can feast on a wide variety of Filipino street food–from balut, fried chicken skin, mami, shawarma, sweet corn, and even home-cooked meals.

Baguio’s night market has become an industry that is now managed by the Baguio City Market Authority (BCMA) to help common folks earn a living. It has come a long way when it first started in 2007, back then, ukay-ukay vendors started selling their items at night using makeshift tables on the side of the road. The rest, as they say, is history.
