I have been going to this delightful bazaar since they started way back 2005 when I used to live in an apartment right across the park where their stalls are.

One of the best things about going there is the huge variety of cuisines being sold for a fairly reasonable price. My personal favorites are the vegetarian samosas with tamarind sauce, the mango shake (this stall is hard to miss because they're the only one selling fruit shake and they're located right around one of the entrances), and takoyaki (eat them while they're hot!). But my latest guilty pleasure is buying a whole bottle of freshly made ginger ale (being sold for p220). The guy who sells them would go to great lengths explaining how they make it, the ingredients they use and it doesn't hurt that he is quite easy on the eyes.

There are also fresh seafood available and you can peruse humongous crabs/prawns/etc without having to suffer the horrible smell of rotting stuff you sometimes get from your local wet markets), homemade juice and home decor including flowers and plants.

Carts are located towards the southeast end of the square and you need to pay p5.00 for bathroom use.

The only change I've noticed is that they now allow cars/delivery vans to enter the premise and it gets super crowded especially during lunch hour.

Otherwise, it's still one of my favorite places to hang with friends to start my weekend right ... deliciously.

I visited this place one Saturday morning with friends and oh boy I'm glad I did! Fresh food all over the place from Mediterranean, Filipino, Japanese, Chinese, etc. you can eat whatever your stomach desires! There are also native Filipino goodies like kalamay, puto, kutsinta. Lechon, pork and chicken bbques, dinuguan, adobo. We ate lumpiang ubod, very fresh and delicious! Also had samosas (beef) tasty and spicy. There are also seafood and plants to be bought. This is one place not to be missed when you're in Makati area on a Saturday morning. A good place to get lunch and to people watch!

I'm told it's a parking lot from Mondays to Fridays - but every Saturday - farmers, housewives, family F&B operators, seafood and gourmet food suppliers set up stalls for a few hours in the morning. Beautiful produce, freshest seafood and baked breads (sugar free! Yay). Roasted coffee beans or powder from different regions. You can also eat your fill and buy a week of cooked food and desserts from Thai to local to italian dishes! Finds like chestnuts (roasted on location), unusual fruits, less common local vegetables, choicest (read large) cashews. I tried the mushroom burger, barako coffee from Batangas ( fragrant with almost no acidity), various local sausages - tocino and chorizos. All delicious!
Were I living locally, I'd be here for grocery shopping or "catering Saturday night gatherings" at home for friends and family near weekly! at 10:30 am, it was pleasantly filled but not crowded. Not even that hot although it was a sunny day
The local "color and flavor" and friendly folk beats any crowded mall.

This market only opens on Saturdays. Located in Makati area, where is usually crowded only during working days.

Salcedo Saturday Market offered many things from light meals, vegetables and groceries, drinks, honey, plants, etc. However I didn’t see souvenir stalls here. ATM bank machines were available, located on some buildings nearby.

The place was clean, no smoking allowed, some could communicate in English, most foods were not halal (yes, they have porks or its derivative products). Some were cheap, some were average but still acceptable. There were some Indonesian food, which was usually halal (though some parts of Indonesia still provide non halal foods).

Though the area was clean, but the dining area (with round tables) were short of trash bins. Most people didn’t know where the trash, and they just left it on the tables.

Not really sure how to get here, since I rode my friend’s car.
