Baguio City Market and the Rattan Fruit

A must stop in Baguio City is the Baguio City Market.  Every fresh produce of the North Luzon can be found in the Baguio City Market.  Products range from brooms to pasalubongs.

The Baguio City Market occupies a large area.  The market vendors are scattered on both indoor and outdoor parts.  It's best to go to Baguio City Market early in the morning between 5 to 6 am so you can bargain for a cheaper price.  The vendors believe in "buena mano" (a Spanish word which means "good hand") wherein the first sale of the day will bring succeeding ones.

One of our Travel Tripsters favorite stops in the Baguio City Market is the coffee stalls.  They have the finest coffee beans from the Benguet Region.  In fact, the famous Nescafe Instant Coffee is the largest purchaser of Benguet Blend coffee.

We, Travel Tripsters, were intrigued upon seeing the Rattan Fruit.  The manong vendor noticed our musing and asked us to try it.  Upon opening and tasting, fellow Travel Tripster Kurt face transformed into a sour look I have never seen before.  The manong vendor was laughing hard at our looks.  Boy! It was so sour.  Haha! But, it was a good discovery too.

Overall, there are a lot of great finds at the Baguio City Market.  We Travel Tripsters advise it a must stop when you're at Baguio City.
