Weekend Snapshot: Fiesta Market

This is my favorite part of Market! Market!...the Fiesta Market where delicacies from different provinces are being sold. When I'm craving for ibos (sticky rice wrapped in coconut leaves and cooked in coconut milk), there's no need to call an aunt in Bacolod to request a dozen ibos to be sent airport to airport. Pili nuts from Bicol, native coffee from Bukidnon, piyaya from Bacolod, sukang iloco from Ilocos, tinapa from Bataan, danggit from Cebu and many more---you can find them all here. I went to Fiesta Market yesterday looking for a bottle of sinamak, an Ilonggo sauce of fermented coconut vinegar with red chili peppers, ginger and garlic. I found the sinamak and went home with a shopping bag full of goodies---all fattening!

Fiesta Market is a place we like to visit. So many things to see and so much to learn.

I hope they have strawberry cider vinegar which I am currently looking for. A blogger friend was not able to find this is Baguio where its supposed to be sold. Our bottle content is slowly dwindling.

Piaya is a personal favorite :)

Market Market is indeed a perfect place to get all sorts of goodies from different regions of the country. When we want to buy something for a balikbayan friend or relative, that's where we go.

Thanks for your comments on my blog. I have wonderful memories of the old Antonio's but I like the new one as well. The renovated area is perfect because more people can enjoy the place even when the weather is not cooperative.

Panaderos said...

I wish I had the chance to stop by that place the last time I was in Manila. Sigh. So many places to go to but so little time. Naks! :D

Thanks for sharing such great info and pics! :)
