The Urban Food Collective Weekend Market

Prior to being a blogger, I experienced a weekend market in Ortigas back in the days that I was working there. It was called Banchetto. There were a lot, and I mean it, A LOT of food selections everywhere. It was every Friday night until Saturday morning where they would occupy this part of the road and would set up their tents and food. Almost all the food on your wishlist are there so it really feels like heaven. That's when I started to love weekend market and food bazaars.

Since the Holiday Season is fast approaching, The Urban Food Collective (TUFC) will bring us something to look forward to!

Current, informative and educational, TUFC aims to be the food hub where people can share their fashion for gastronomy. TUFC's online community will feature everything food - articles and recipes, exciting deals featuring the country's best culinary fare, and "The Urban Food Collective Marketplace" which will retail unique food items and implements. To bring the online community even closer together, TUFC will champion various food lifestyle event, where foodies  can meet and indulge in their passion forunique flavors and gustatory delights. 

The Urban Food Weekend Market is a carefully curated collection of purveyors. Located in CommerCenter, Alabang's newest lifestyle mall, it is a place where people can comfortably gather, browse and shop. It will be a venue for patrons to find a bevy of treasures from gourmet, specialty foods to local, artisanal arts and crafts. The Weekend Market's activities and pocket events will give them the opportunity to learn new things or simply engage with the community.

For purveyors, it will be an opportunity to showcase their goods to a truly discerning crowd, while providing them with a getaway to other business opportunities with The Urban Food Collective.

A portion of the proceeds from the Weekend Market will be donated to Taguyod Bayan Foundation, which will help in rebuilding the communities affected by typhoon Haiyan in Sara, Iloilo.

Entrance is FREE.

See you on October to December 2014!!

  1. I like the concept of weekend markets! Yung tipong madaming fresh produce at mga kakaibang products. Naka-try ako sa Salcedo at Eton Centris, at yung paborito naming Mercato Midnight Market na more on food trips naman, hehe. YUng Banchetto gusto ko rin mapuntahan, meron pa din ba nun? :)


Thanks for reading my humble blog.
Leave me some love, I'll visit your blogs too.
Much Love,
