Transforming what is usually a dull concrete parking lot–the Legazpi Sunday Market in Makati is arguably one of the best weekend markets in Manila. A counterpart to the upscale Salcedo Saturday Market, Legazpi certainly has its own character. Offering more than that of Salcedo–from the regular weekend mass to the free library where you can trade books, it’s one of the best markets to visit after your hour-long jog.

Aside from the usual fresh organic vegetables, it’s also smartly divided into different sections. A huge section is mostly occupied by food stalls offering different cuisines while a number of stalls offer products ranging from bags, undergarments, carpets, textiles, fresh seafood, and even leather goods.

Most people, however, come for the food and you can’t really blame them. With its administrators making sure that the market is not saturated with vendors selling the same product, one can expect to see different offerings in every turn.

If you’re heading there any time soon, expect to see fresh produce, Thai, Moroccan, Polish, Japanese, Filipino, Malaysian, Spanish, Indonesian, Asian, and Chinese cuisines. And once you’re done, you can head to the dry goods section to grab a bottle of fresh honey, homemade soap, postcard, or even fresh herbs.
