Sidcor Sunday Market: The Biggest Weekend Market in the Philippines

I've been hearing a lot about weekend markets in Bonifacio Global City, Makati, and Quezon City before. Hubby and I had thoughts of visiting one of them, but the plan never really happened. When I watched on TV one day that Sidcor Sunday Market is the #1 weekend market in the metro, I told myself I just have to visit it soon.

Eton Centris, Quezon Avenue. We went there just last Sunday.

There were lots and lots of things for sale at those numerous stalls.

I bought fresh vegetables, sweet potatoes and strawberries from this one.

There were huge pizzas of various toppings or flavors.

Fried seafood! I had a pack of those yummy crispy shrimps.

This stall sells ham and other preserved meat. No buy from here.

Huge fresh shrimps. I seldom see this kind of shrimp in the market.

A barbecue stall. Kuya is busy grilling chicken, pork and tuna.

The flowers and other garden products are sold here.

After shopping, the little one just wanted to ride the carousel.

After that, we sat on the grass while she's finishing her afternoon milk.

Then, she rode the train with her Baba.

Our first time visiting the Sidcor Sunday Market was a lot of fun. Hubby liked it because it is very similar to the Turkish pazar (bazaar in English), a weekend market which moves everyday from one district to another. Our family enjoyed looking around, buying fresh produce and eating gourmet meals. My only complain was the very hot weather that day. Next time, we will try to come earlier to avoid the scorching heat of the summer sun.
