The very first eco market in the Philippines is set to launch in Intramuros

The Old Manila Eco Market, in partnership with Intramuros Administration, is opening Philippine’s very first eco market in Plaza Roma, Intramuros, Manila.

It is a weekend market where selected social entrepreneurs and small-scale businesses around the country are invited to showcase their world-class products and services. It will be launched on Sunday, October 7th, 2018 and will be held every Sunday until December 30th, 2018.

The Old Manila Eco Market is:

  • a zero-waste market where plastic is banned. Merchants are to sell their products in eco-friendly packaging while market-goers are encouraged to bring their own utensils, lunch boxes, and eco bags for their purchases.
  • a healthy-living market where selling sodas and food with preservatives will not be allowed. A fresh fruit and vegetable stall will be set-up right in the middle of the market for the market-goers — foodies and health buffs alike can get their weekly produce supply at the eco market.
  • a child and pet-friendly market where kids of all ages, families of all sizes and kind are encouraged to bond with their family and friends over a Sunday of good food.
  • a Filipino market. Priority is given to booths that will showcase Filipino brands. The eco-market wants to provide that much-needed exposure to small entrepreneurs and hence, it prioritizes giving booth slots to social enterprises that are directly tied-up to marginalized communities. Selling counterfeit and sub-standard items will not be allowed.

The Old Manila Eco Market is a weekend market that Manila can call its very own! With the rise in consciousness of Filipinos about zero-waste and healthier lifestyle, there is now a huge demand for the availability of more sustainable products and services in the market. Manileños do not have to travel very far anymore and can stay away from heavy traffic jams, giving them more time to bond with their families.

By supporting the event, you will also help promote Philippine tourism and heritage conservation.
