Complementing the Make It Happen! Make It Makati! campaign, an ongoing project initiated by Ayala Land Inc. (ALI), Makati Commercial Estate Association, Inc. (MACEA), and the local government of Makati, aiming to underscore the opportunities for the changing lifestyles of the city — let’s all get ready to spend a weekend or four at the Makati Street Market.
We are all aware of the fact that Makati contains an extensive assemblage of dining and shopping spots, noting the success of the Legazpi Sunday Market at the moment, we can probably expect more from this new shopping event. And with the novel lifestyle concept that will be adapted by the amplified Makati Street Market, the initiative will contribute in strengthening Makati’s dynamism as a quintessential address for adaptive urbanites and contemporary small to medium scale commerce.
Makati Street Market
“Geared to become the biggest of its kind in the country, the upcoming Makati Street Market is truly a grand scene, which will highlight not only the selection of good finds and good food in Makati, but also one of the reasons why the city is a dynamic address of endless lifestyle possibilities. Nonetheless, facades and environs aside, the main goal that the initiative truly aspires is to uphold and support more of the country’s local products and homegrown services, which will arguably lead to the growth of budding artisanal businesses like Mantequilla, Budbud Gourmet Suman, and Pinoy Ordurvz Foods for delicacies; Patika Beads and Wiresworks for fashion accessories; and Creative Definitions, Bicol Sweetgrass Handcrafts, and All in Red Clay Factory for crafts and home decor.”
To cultivate the stirring atmosphere of the district, where the street market is located, the organizers have plans to set up pocket events for four consecutive Sundays starting September 23 to October 14. Activities you can expect include (hopefully, not limited to): grilling competitions, adobo festival, dance and cocktail events, and even biking workshops that paints Makati’s landscape as an accessible city.
