Finally, finally we found time to revisit Salcedo Market last Saturday and I was excited like a little kid to wander around.
Salcedo Market or Salcedo Community Market is located in the heart of Makati. It is ideally located at the Jaime Velasquez Park which is airy and bright. I love it there that trees surrounds the whole area and the place do not get overly crowded even if a whole shift of call center people nearby pop in. 😀
The market which brings a wide produce including meat, seafood, bread, pastries, local delicacies, fruits, flower, plants, cooked meals, grilled items, etc. is ideal for early risers and market goers (the sosyal group IMO). I guess for pretty ordinary people like us it’s not sensible to get our weekly supplies here but once in a while it’s nice to rub elbows with the Richie rich group and buy some organic produce, try out international specialties or source some hard-to-find ingredients and eat something new like hard to spell out dishes. Baklava what?
Leoncio and I made at least two rounds before we settle for grilled milkfish (boneless) + rice + grilled Japanese corn. I also bought two pomelos for Nanay. I know our choice was quite boring that day, I was a bit overwhelmed by the many choices and that makes me diverted which Leoncio hates, so when he told me about the grilled fish I nod to give my approval and to end my hunt for something I really don’t know. By the way, there are tents to provide shade for dining patrons or you can simply hang out and people-watch.
For someone like me who loves the outdoors, and mornings and Saturdays included, Salcedo Market is just the thing. I envy those who live nearby and wish we’re opportune as they are. We plan to visit back once again to savor a warm breakfast or brunch, there’s something with the morning vibes and I’m loving the mood out there. ♥
