In the 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. Our team regularly visits this place every time we come up to Baguio City, and we always have an enjoyable shopping experience.

Hundreds of Stores

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

Affordability

Another thing that people love about Baguio Night Market is its affordability. We bought some bonnets (beanies) for ourselves, and some scarves as gifts for our friends. The scarves 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)! Now that’s a great deal!

Hangry? No Problem

Even with the ongoing pandemic, the tourists and vendors in the city strictly follow the health guidelines and protocols. We also noticed signs posted around the market reminding everybody to practice social distancing. Therefore, we felt safe during our visit since everyone was following the protocols of Baguio City. However, 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 security purposes.
