Escolta Flea Market
Tuesdays to Sundays 11am to 8pm
Long overlooked in comparison to its neighbours, Manila’s markets are having something of a renaissance, springing up in parks, refurbished old buildings, and unclaimed open spaces all across the capital. With the natural creativity Filipinos bring to the table, these buzzing bazaars are sure to be crammed with goods that are worth whipping your wallet out for. Here’s a round-up of the best must-visit markets in Manila.
One of Manila’s “younger” markets, the Saturday spread at Greenfield District is well-loved for its combination of casual dining, bargain buys, and live entertainment. It starts in the afternoon, with sellers laying out everything from health and beauty products to traditional Filipino sweets and pet supplies – all in the shade of an open park.
Saturdays, 4pm to 12pm
