Scenery Sunday :- Market Life in Laoag, Philippines

It’s Sunday and I just got back from the Laoag Public Market in Ilocos Norte province of the Philippines. Now I’m hiding in an air conditioned McDonald’s to share with you the photos I just captured in the buzzing market.

It is a combination of an outdoor and indoor market. Outdoor hawkers spread out their goods onto tarps on the road and inside the permanent structure, 4 levels of shop stalls keep their goods in a more organized fashion.

It is literally swarming with people stocking up on fresh produce and daily necessities.

It has been quite a while since I have seen so many new unknown items at a fresh market. I need a local food dictionary or interpreter to explain it all and quiet my curiosity.
