Spice up your Saturday with a visit to the awesome Village Market at the Villa Angela Subdivison in Bacolod City!
The Village Market is held every Saturday from 7am to 7pm. It’s located at Cedar and Don Fernando road, Villa Angela Subdivision beside Trinity Christian School.
The Market consists of a long row of tents and stalls with tons of food and cool stuff that any foodie in Bacolod mustn’t miss.
Just walk down the long row of tents – you can find an assortment of vendors selling items that range from coconuts and vegetables to shawarma and cakes!
There’s plenty of fresh vegetables on sale at the vegetable section of the Village Market.
There’s lots of small business owners selling their food. Bring plenty of money because the food all looks and smells so good! Most of the stalls here sell local filipino food and delicacies that will really tempt you to try them.
We spotted a stall – Simon’s Pork Sisig selling sisig – a traditional native comfort food made of chopped pig cheeks and jowl. It’s a spicy dish that goes well with a nice cold drink.
Another stall was doing brisk business selling Siomai – steamed meat dimsum that is a popular snack in the Philippines.
We saw Gracia Pies and Pastries selling hot and fresh tuna pies, banana pudding and macaroni soup (sopas). Delicious comfort food!
We also found this stall selling tubs of Kimchi! Kimchi and Korean food is very popular in the Philippines. It’s amazing to see how our tastes and palates have changed with exposure to other cultures.
There’s also pastries and breads to be found in the Village Market.
Want nuts? Check out this cheekily named peanut vendor. Pee Nut. They sell salted peanuts and peanut butter.
There’s this unique stall that you mustn’t miss at the Villa Angela Village Market. It’s Culinaria BCD and they brought a full on grill/smoker to the Market!
CulinariaBCD serves awesome sandwiches. They have Smoked chicken and pulled pork sandwiches, Smoked hungarian sausages, pita pockets, homemade boursin cheese and even sangria drinks to brighten up your visit to the weekend market.
Wowie zowie, this looks pretty good!
CulinariaBCD also bakes their own bread! You can have a nice bun or loaf of their freshly baked bread to pair with your sandwich.
There’s a designated area for dining at the Village Market. Pop in there and enjoy your meal!
We got a tuna pie from Gracia’s, a smoked hungarian sausage from CulinariaBCD, a pulled pork sandwich and plenty of sangria to wash it all down.
The hungarian sausage tastes bland at first but when you chew it, a lot of flavor and spice is released. It’s like having a mini flavor explosion in your mouth!
The pulled pork sandwich is extremely good. It also comes with large pickle slices and pickled onions for a nice, crunchy protein-packed lunch! Very tasty.
