Thinking of a place to go on weekends without overspending, a place just near the Metro and hang out with friends and kids? YES! You may bring your kids while chilling out at Greenfield Weekend Market!
We visited Greenfield Weekend Market last Saturday, and I found it really enjoyable especially that they have a big ground for kids to play with interactive toys for kids of all ages and even young at heart can get to enjoy to!
GREENFIELD WEEKEND MARKET
The Greenfield Weekend Market, with its home at the Central Park of Greenfield District, keeps a tradition of originality and variety when it comes to cheering habitues and newcomers every Saturday evening. For foodies, the dining adventure in the hangout goes beyond the conventional and traditional for a truly memorable gustatory experience.
We didn’t had the chance though to check out Emy and Ody Concepcion Fruits which I really expected to see a “market” like fresh fruits and veggies.
I enjoyed lurking at the wide variety of cooked and fresh foods to eat, which made it really difficult for me to choose which ones to try.
One of the food stall that really caught our attention is the Seafood Fest which boasts of the really yummy squid sizzled with special sauce partnered with rice and another viand of choice. I choose of course my favorite crablets.
Other preferences are foodies such as shawarma from Habib’s, smoked barbecue from Carnivore Cookery, Hungarian sausages from The Cut Premium Meat, chicken fingers from Fingers and Flavors, Mexican favorites from the Real Mexicanos and even Japanese favorites like takoyaki and ramen from Shumagorath Takoyaki.
A food stall serves fresh drinks such as buko juice, melon juice, cucumber, lemonade, dalandan and red iced tea. For native sweets and desserts, there are lechen flan, cheese cake, Taiwan milk tea, ice cream and even yoghurt. It’s a weekend market so there are fruits, culinary herbs, spices, organic vegetables, brown rice, and salted eggs, as well for urbanites’ kitchen.
Other interesting finds are their non-food stalls. For art lovers like me, you will enjoy the art gallery booths and ask to be painted using charcoal or colorful paint. It is also interesting to see there’s an art booth for your pets, you can ask your pet to be painted on stone, keychain or bookmark.
There are stalls selling books, vinyl records, shirts, artworks, toys, toiletry items, and many others. I bought two books for my baby to read.
We found goers lining up on the fortune-telling booth, I haven’t got the chance to take pictures though because of the crowd flocking the booth. You can ask for advice, or get an insight of your future for free.
Enhancing our food and play leisure, are the jazz musicians playing on the center of the field. I enjoyed listening to a live saxophone play and live jazz music.
