I love visiting markets, especially if it is the local market. It is for me, the soul of a city. The market reveals so much about the culture of a place. It is, after all, where the locals go to get their fresh produce and livestocks. Baguio is no exception and it is actually one of the highlights whenever I find myself there. A trip to Baguio will never be complete without a trip to the market.
Located high up in the mountains of the province of Benguet and due to the cold weather, fruits, vegetables and even coffee beans grow beautifully and abundantly in this “city of pines”. The province provides the entire Luzon majority of its vegetables, so they don’t get any fresher in this city.
You’ll find stalls upon stalls of various types of produce obviously from fresh fruits
to organic red mountain rice
to coffee. Garcia’s is at the top of my list for good quality coffee beans. Quite a variety to choose from and best of all, they deliver to Manila for a fee and I think a minimum order of 5 kilos.
Also ranking high on my list (more than the veggies actually) is the delectable longganisa (Filipino style sausages). They are just the yummiest and I always go for the Baguio special garlic flavor, the one they serve at the Baguio Country Club. Just writing about it makes me want to cook me some longganisa… haha! 😀
