Shoppers in north and east metro looking for fresh produce, seafood, meat products, and other food items have one more chance to catch the Harvest to Goodness Weekend Market at Eastwood Central Plaza in Eastwood City this weekend.
An initiative by the Department of Agriculture, in partnership with Megaworld Lifestyle Malls and non-profit group RestoPH, the weekend market aims to provide a venue for farmers, fisherfolks, and Filipino-owned restaurants to showcase and market their products in a safe shopping environment. It’s open on July 24-26.
Some of the fresh finds for sale at the Harvest to Goodness Weekend Market include:
- Bananas, avocados, watermelons, dragonfruit, eggplant, upo, squash, and more fresh fruits and vegetables from Benguet, Baguio City, Bulacan, Quezon Province, and Batangas.
- Boneless Dagupan Bangus and other seafood items such as tiger prawns, tilapia, espada, talakitok, and more.
- Fresh strawberries from Baguio.
- Fresh organic, chicken, and salted eggs from Bulacan.
- Coconut products including skimmed coconut milk.
- Flavored yogurt from Batangas.
- Pechay, mustasa, and patola seed packs from Bureau of Plant Industry.
- Thai milk tea and grab-and-go meals from Mango Tree.
- Cow Cow Ice Cream from Tokyo Milk Cheese Factory.
- DIY Ramen from Menya Kokoro.
Shoppers who prefer to have their goods delivered to their doorsteps can use the personal shopping service app MyKuya and pay cashless using PayMaya.
They can also get in touch directly with the farmers—contact information are posted on Eastwood City’s Facebook page, Viber Communities, and website—to pre-order products and pick them up at the curbside pick-up station at Eastwood Central Plaza.
Cashless personal deliveries for food purchases from participating restaurants can also be made via LalaFood and Mr. Speedy.
After its Eastwood staging, the weekend farmers market will move to Venice Grand Canal in McKinley Hill on July 31 to August 2, before heading to Uptown Bonifacio on August 7-9.
