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.

Disarranged corn stack is good news. There had been a sale.

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

Most Picturesque Tropical Market

image

The produce section of local traditional markets have something in common – full of colors. But there is one market in Southeast Asia that stood out when viewed in its entirety. Literally, in a bigger picture, the top view sight of Siti Khadijah Market is truly beautiful.

The multitude of colors coming from the produce, bottle covers, traditional garbs of the sellers and customers, and the walls of the building make the entire scene picturesque. It’s full of life and its crudeness is its charm. Hoping the look will stay the same for long time.
