Mercato Centrale at the Fort is one of, if not the biggest weekend farmers market in Manila.
Open on Saturdays and Sundays from 6:00 am - 2:00 pm, Mercato not only features some of the city's freshest and highest quality products but also well dressed laid-back folks in their lazy weekend maxi’s, shorts and loafers. If you're there early in the day it's not uncommon to find Manila's best chefs scouring the market for seasonal ingredients.
