The indoor street market can be found right next to Starbucks at Vibo Place. The food park, on the other hand, is right in front of Rico’s Lechon.
ITEMS TO BUY AT THE CHRISTMAS BAZAAR
At this Christmas bazaar you’ll find various unique items that you can get as gifts. This includes house plants, tote bags, self-care products, and all kinds of knick knacks.
If you’re interested in getting plants, you will definitely find the Rustique kiosk interesting. This tiny gardening store is located right at the entrance. There are plants and other gardening needs like soil, pots, and fertilizers, all at reasonable prices.
Whether you’d like to get one for your home or office, it will definitely make your space feel more homey. Succulents are available if you prefer to have indoor plants.
If not, you can get into gardening as a hobby or as a means to cope with everyday stress. Gardening is enjoyable for any age and can be therapeutic due to the strict routine of maintaining the plants and their various health benefits.
Another stall sells different bags made from local fabrics with interesting designs.
Not only will you be supporting local workers and farmers when purchasing these items, but you will also be exposing the works of independent artists who designed them.
There are also several pairs of socks with colorful patterns and various pop culture references. These would definitely make a great gift for friends, especially if they’re a fan of certain TV shows, movies, or fictional characters.
Another stall sells Filipino native delicacies from Chilen’s Chicharon, a famous Chicharon store in Carcar. You can even purchase a tub of kalamay, the sweet peanut paste that was popularized in Bohol.
Lastly, one stall offers self-care needs like oils, soaps, and other beauty products. Other items you can purchase are air purifiers and scented candles.
Once you’re through with the indoor street market, you can proceed to the food bazaar outside.
One stall sells Ji Pai, a Taiwanese delicacy that has grown popular in the past few years.
It’s basically fried chicken fillet that has been marinated. This is commonly sold as a street food dish around the streets of Taiwan.
The Ji Pai sold at the stall comes in three flavors: Original, Spicy, and Barbecue. You can order it ala carte or pair it up with rice or pasta.
The food park also features KRT, which is the Philippines’ first rolling milk tea store. They are famous for selling Taiwanese milk tea in mobile stores using bikes, cars, or trucks.
At the Christmas bazaar, they only have a standard kiosk with a menu of their most famous milk and fruit tea drinks. They also offer a promo where you can buy two large drinks for 180 Php.
For dessert, you can order some upside down cookies at D’ Luzcioso. These come in a variety of flavors inspired by famous candies and treats.
This is the second branch of the start-up company, which originally opened a stall on the North Coast of IL Corso Lifemalls.
The small Christmas bazaar is a great place to get some early Christmas shopping done. It is slated to run until February 15th, so you can enjoy the festivities before and after the holiday season.
Other than that, it makes for a great hangout spot for late afternoon food trips and budget-friendly shopping. If you’re curious to see what you can get for your loved ones this Christmas, drop by the bazaar at Vibo Place Escario today!
