Last Novem­ber 3, 2018, Mocha Events Pro­duc­tions launched its Mer­cado Lo­cale at the newly opened Gaisano Grand Ci­ty­gate in Buhangin, Davao City.

Those liv­ing within the Ca­ban­tian and In­dan­gan ar­eas will now be able to also en­joy prod­ucts made and sold by home­grown small and medium en­ter­prises (SMEs).

Jette An­gela Vil­la­fuerte, or­ga­nizer of Mer­cado Lo­cale and owner of Mocha Events Pro­duc­tions, said through the Mearcado Lo­cale they hope to be a venue for lo­cal SMEs to show­case their prod­ucts to the gen­eral pub­lic.

With around 20 ex­h­bitors, vis­i­tors at Mer­cado Lo­cale can ex­pect a range of lo­cally made prod­ucts from food, cloth­ings, frozen goods, drinks, and pasalubong items, among oth­ers.

Among the ex­hibitors in­clude Aloha Palami­gan, Salted Egg Po­tato Chips, Wow Le­chon, Yema Cake, Si­a­ton Siomai, Yo­suke Ra­men, Japoy’s Pastil, Don En­riquez Pizza, Sit­sirya Sari-sari, and Viva La ChiCha.

Some of the food that I rec­om­mend you try is Japoy’s Pastil and Viva La ChiCha’s ribs. Both were re­ally good.

One of the unique prod­ucts that you can find here is the do it your own ra­men of Yo­suke Ra­men. A box of their ra­men in­cludes a ra­men paste, ra­men noo­dles, nori strip, and gar­nish­ings. The box also comes with in­struc­tions.

For a re­fresh­ing drink, be sure to check out Aloha Palami­gan.
