We know most of our readers love food. There’s a reason why our EAT/DRINK section is the most visited portion of the site. Clearly you guys are foodies one way or another. We’ll let you in on a little secret. Have you heard of the Sunday Market in Banilad Town Centre (BTC)?

Actually it has been running for a good two years. Informally called the Organic Market in BTC; Started by the retail store Chains. Recently they decided to amp it up and have a full blown Sunday Market.

You can expect various carts selling out of the ordinary stuff. I hate to use the word stuff here, but how can you categorize organic fruits and vegetables, artisan breads and pastries, Indian delicacies, Thai delicacies, Spanish dishes like chorizo and paella, cupcakes, herbal pillows, French Macarons, and virgin coconut products in one word?

Reasons to check it out

–       It’s great for the health conscious shopper. There’s lots of organic produce.

–       Looking for sinfully delectable desserts? We’ve got our favorites (Macarons!).

–       For those who like putting on their chef’s hat, you may find an ingredient to play with.

–       Open your mind mouth to the international menu! Indian, Thai, Spanish and French were well represented.

–       Try something new. Do it and go!
