Super Sumptuous Sunday: Legazpi Sunday Market

This morning, I found myself in Makati, going through stall after stall of delicious treats and intriguing morsels at the Legazpi Sunday Market. As I was basking in the languid atmosphere, it made me think back to a similar Sunday morning a year or two ago. With camera on hand, I happily snapped photos of the stalls and offerings then. Unfortunately, I never got to share these photos, sitting quietly in my unblogged folder.

While these photos might not be relevant as a feature for the current Legazpi Sunday Market, I’d like to share them with you now as part of my oft wordless Sumptuous Sundays Series. With that, let the food porn begin!

  1. I should visit the Legazpi Market one of these days. Haven’t been there in years — since we worked in the area!

      Those were the days 😛 It’s a bit different now. There are more ready-to-eat stalls than there are food sellers. So you better head there with an empty stomach. Oooooh, and there was a store that specializes in Japanese goods—yukata even! I want to ask Yue’s opinion about the yukata quality first though, since it’s kinda pricey.

    How i miss this Sunday market!

    • kaoko says:

      There’s much to miss, yes. I hope you find time to visit sometime. I was surprised and excited with the new vendors, but seeing the old ones was reassuring too.

    This is one of the things I miss most about living in Manila. :)

    I worked in Makati for years but it was only this year that I was able to visit the Legazpi market. I wished I had more space in my stomach and more money in my pocket hehe. Then again, pwede naman bumalik. :)

      Understandable. Weekend yung markets e. I’m the sort of person who avoids the workplace area on the days that I can, that’s why I go to Salcedo and Legazpi very rarely. Plus the fact that they’re blackholes where my wallet’s concerned 😛
