Sunday at the Market.

It was supposed to be a quick meeting - me, to lend her my Nikon SLR because I want her to test if it's still working fine; and she, to give me the polaroid camera. But we ended up talking about photography and school. Joy is a math professor and she has many stories about teaching. We also went to the Legaspi Sunday Market, bought food and ate, talked more, and took lots of pictures.

I like this market. It has many delicious homemade specialties and lovely handmade stuff. Really love the authenticity of things sold there. There's spanish, italian, japanese, chinese, pinoy delicacies. And oh, french crepes, too. Yum!

I bought lechon paksiw, cream dory fillet, mango suman, and budbud kabog. Well, hello 20 pounds! It was the yummiest budbud kabog I've tasted. Maybe, I'll go back next Sunday for more.

Some photos...


Quiche, lots of them!


Closer look. They're yum.


Books! And just beside them, someone was selling handmade fashion accessories.


Beautiful photo prints for sale.


You can grab a bunch of fresh flowers there, too.
And yep, people actually bring trollies there when they shop.


I can't remember exactly what they were selling. Just finding this charming.


Dried fish! Yum!


Homemade pies.


Soya or milk? Soya most likely.


You can grab soaps made of natural ingredients there, too!


Lunch and everything delicious!


Many also sell organic produce.


I want a pair of these handmade shoes!


Pin It!

Ai, I love going to that Sunday Market, too. And guess what? The owner of the stall with the books and the handmade accessories (beautiful pieces, actually) is a very good friend of mine. She is even in the picture. LOL. She's a dear person. Next time you go, talk to her. :)
