Eat, Shop and Mingle at Makati Street Market

Got nothing to do this beautiful and blessed Sunday? Well, why not take your friends and family to the hippest and most amazing street market in the metropolis as Legaspi Sunday Market brings the best fours Sundays of our lives with their Makati Street Market!

Ready to glam up our Sunday in a very unique and festive market experience, Legazpi Sunday Market in Makati prepares this Sunday and the three succeeding Sundays to a fun-filled and learning Sunday as they share to us the first and biggest artisanal market of its kind in the Philippines. Enthused by the verve of the renowned outdoor lifestyle markets in Barcelona, Berlin, Helsinki, and Paris, the Makati Street Market will retain the Legazpi Sunday Market’s open-air venue laid-out in a dazzling urban backdrop, which allows people to take pleasure in dining and shopping amid the vivacious Makati atmosphere. 

Furthermore, the enhanced street souk will be adapting the idea of artisanal market concepts, where purchasers will deal with the food artisans themselves. The market organizers will set up pocket events for four consecutive Sundays starting September 23 - TODAY - to October 14. The said activities include grilling competitions, adobo festival, dance and cocktail events, and even biking workshops highlighting Makati’s landscape as a city that boasts of accessibility.

It's been years since I've been to Legazpi Sunday Market, and I must say that with these latest developments and exciting news that I've got from them, I honestly can't wait to wake up again on an early Sunday morning just to visit and savor the sight and flavor of this highly urbanized market.

This upcoming Makati Street Market is said to highlight not only the selection of good finds and good food in Makati, but also the endless lifestyle possibilities. Nonetheless, facades and environs aside, the main goal that the initiative truly aspires is to uphold and support more of the country’s local products and homegrown services, which will arguably lead to the growth of budding artisanal businesses like Mantequilla, Budbud Gourmet Suman and Pinoy Ordurvz Foods for delicacies; Patika Beads and Wiresworks for fashion accessories; and Creative Definitions, Bicol Sweetgrass Handcrafts and All in Red Clay Factory for crafts and home decor.

Joining the said market transformation is Alveo Land - Ayala Land Inc.’s benchmark of lifestyle innovation since the location of the market itself is pivotal to the thriving dynamism in the district, where two of its landmark projects are located -The Lerato and Kroma Towers.

Apart from this, Makati Street Market also complements the Make It Happen! Make It Makati! campaign, an ongoing project initiated by Ayala Land Inc. (ALI), Makati Commercial Estate Association, Inc. (MACEA), and the local government of Makati, aiming to underscore the opportunities for the changing lifestyles of the city’s denizens. 

To date, the market’s location - Makati North - is being highlighted by the abovementioned groups as a lifestyle spot for young and creative denizens, since this district is landscaped with a range of bars, shopping spots, museums, and concept stores.

With of this exciting and tummy-filling activities that are waiting for us, evidently, the ongoing success of the Legazpi Sunday Market was no fluke, despite the fact that Makati already houses a wide-array of dining and shopping spots. And with the exceptional lifestyle concept that will be adapted and enhanced by the amplified Makati Street Market, the initiative will further strengthen Makati’s dynamism as an ideal address for today’s evolving urbanites, as well as the flourishing business of our fellow countrymen.

Through all of these additions to the thriving city of Makati, no wonder many of our fellow are really loving this highly developed and truly a world-class city. I LOVE YOU, MAKATI!

The Makati Street Market is located at the Legazpi Park in Makati City. The pocket events will run for four Sundays (September 23, September 30, October 7 and October 14), from  7:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

So, see you Legaspi Sunday Market later, all right?
