Luya

Luya (ginger) at 25, 30, or 40 pesos per kilo depending on the size and if it is ‘native’, are being sold at a roadside shop in Bayombong. This produce came from the upland barangays of Nueva Vizcaya province.

Flower Vegetable

Bulaklak ng kalabasa (squash flower) is eaten as vegetable. Normally it goes with eggplant, ampalaya, and sitaw in the same dish such as pinakbet or vegetable soups (e.g. laswa, bulanglang, dinengdeng). Hence the complementary vegetables are placed beside each other on the table space at the market.

Corn stacked vertically and were held together by tying straw around it in multiple levels.
