A counterpart of the equally successful weekend market in Makati’s Legazpi Village, Salcedo’s Saturday Community Market offers a more picturesque backdrop of acacia trees while market goers casually stroll. Originally founded in 2005 under the Women of Bel-Air Foundation, Inc., Salcedo Market offers a wide variety of cuisines coupled by a few vendors who sell fresh seafood and a selection of orchids and plants.
Since its inception, frequent market goers should now notice how each stall have been labeled to better segregare it into sections. Our personal favorite remains to be Tuna Town’s isaw and rellenong/relyenong alimasag which has, over the years, remained consistent. And while Filipino food remains to be a personal favorite, an endless selection of Japanese, Persian, Arabic, Italian, Chinese, Thai, and Spanish food should be more than enough reason to consider a visit. If you’re unsure what you’re going to grab–most, if not all, vendors offer a free taste of their products to help you decide.
As word gets around, expect that Salcedo Saturday Market can get cramped at times–especially after 9AM when people usually get in to get their weekend fix. Word of advice, make sure to scout the area in one round and expect some of the items to be a bit pricey–which is normally the case for weekend markets. Once you’re decided, just remember the vendor and circle back. Otherwise, you might end up having more than what you can consume.
Salcedo Saturday Community Market is open every Saturday from 7AM-2PM.
