At evening, a portion of Harrison Road becomes inaccessible to both public and private vehicles. Vendors and merchants assemble their shops, and lay their products in preparation for another busy night. As the clock ticks at 9:00 PM, the lively night begins. I travel up north almost every quarter of the year to this mountainous city and the night market is consistently present in our itinerary.

There are hundreds of stores, locally known as “ukay-ukay”, that can be found in Baguio Night Market. Ukay-ukay is popular in the Philippines and it contains secondhand products and quality items sold at a very low price. Many people visit this place every night because of its affordability and wide range of choices.

We bought caps for ourselves, and scarfs as gift to my aunt and mama. The scarfs we bought were indigenous products from Sagada, Mountain Province. It is weaved meticulously with beautiful geometric patterns reflecting a native Cordillera design; we bought these scarfs for only PHP 100 each (Around USD 2.00). Since there are a lot of people in this place, you should be mindful of your personal items, such as your bags and wallets, for safety purposes.

Baguio Night Market Schedule: When to Visit?

This wonderful market is usually open for 5 hours every night starting from 9:00 PM to 2:00 AM. Since the start of the coronavirus pandemic earlier this year of 2020, tourism has greatly affected. Thus, the local government decided to keep the Baguio Night Market closed for now.

If open, the Baguio Night Market is located in Harrison Road just beside the Burnham Park Football field. I hope for better days to come and I’m excited to see Baguio City light up again with this night market.
