Baguio City Public Market: IN PHOTOS

Baguio Public Market: Street Photography

 

When traveling, very few tourists would consider including a stop at the local market in their itinerary. While certainly understandable, the local market is arguably one of the best places to immerse yourself with how the locals go about their daily routines. From the porters who cart their produce to the wet section that reeks of fish and freshly slaughtered pigs–wet and dry markets in the Philippines is a cacophony that is hard to find somewhere else. Baguio City’s public market is certainly no exception.

 

Baguio is no stranger to markets–one could even argue how the country’s summer capital practically mastered how to efficiently run a public market. From its famous night market along Harrison Road, the city’s public market is one that you should definitely visit especially if you’re into street photography. If you happen to drop by, one thing you’d immediately notice is the plate numbers in each porter’s wooden carts. Similar to motor vehicles, each porter is accredited and issued transport plates that are mounted in the rear end of their carts.

 

From the fresh produce to the wide walkways to the brown-hued alleyways, the city’s public market certainly has much more character than the overcrowded tourist areas that you’d think of visiting.
