Art in the Park and Salcedo Weekend Market in Makati
Working near the park, Tutubi frequents this place when he gets the chance to be in Makati on a Saturday morning but never got to take pictures. This time's different since he was able to hit two birds with one click: Art in the Park and the Salcedo Weekend Market. Tutubi made a quick visit to the "tiangge" to buy lunch and some suman and budbud kabog (a Dumaguete "pasalubong" similar to suman but made of millet seeds)
SALCEDO WEEKEND MARKET
the dela Rosa's Deli Challenge requires eating a giant burger, about 8 inches in diameter, for the treat to be free. there were no takers of it so Tutubi wasn't able to take a snapshot
Suman Biko from a gourmet suman vendor. recommend their budbud kabog from Dumaguete for P25 each (quite pricey but worth it)
The Salcedo Weekend Market is held every Saturday from 7am to 2pm (or later). There you'll see Ineng's Special Barbeque, Cebu Lechon, Salcedo Chicken Inasal, DGM Organic Farm produce, Inihaw ni Ogie, an array of French cuisine prepared by a French resident of the place, Italian pizza made by an Italian, Budbud Kabog (gourmet suman from Dumaguete), burger challenge, fresh flowers, buro from Pampanga, and whole lot more.
ART IN THE PARK
Inspired by the weekly Art Fair at The Rocks in Sydney, Australia, Art in the Park occupies the Velasquez Park's children's playground and features affordable art works with P20000 as the most expensive. It's a project of the Museum Foundation of the Philippines.
Galleries of FEATI and UST students

How to get to Velasquez Park, Salcedo Village, Makati
Commute: From MRT Buendia, board the Washington or LRT/Taft jeepney then alight at the corner of Buendia and Malugay. Cross Buendia then walk along Tordesillas St where the park is located. (Riding the Bel-air jeepneys at the corner of Washington and Buendia or the Guadalupe-bound jeepneys at LRT/Buendia will also get your there)
Driving directions to Salcedo Village by car from EDSA Guadalupe, turn right Buendia (Gil Puyat), then left Paseo de Roxas, cross Makati Avenue (Mandarin Oriental Hotel) then right turn Villar St (Citibank Building). Turn left at the end of Villar St to reach L.P. Leviste (one-way street) where the weekend market is also located. (note there are too many parked vehicles there causing heavy traffic since the place really became popular now)
From LRT/Taft Avenue, traverse Gil Puyat St then right turn at Tordesillas St (Ministop/Philtrust Bank). Salcedo park is just a few meters from by Makati Sports Club and is hard to miss due to the noticeable fiesta atmosphere.

pieterbie, seems we both love art and the outdoors
ironnie, di yata weekly yung art in the park. parang twice a month
kneeko, di ko kaya yung giant burger. maliit lang bodega ko. i'm just using the canon kit lens
carlotta, sige nga try mo hehe
kyels, work and play!
ax, yes. too many choices there. but i had too little time
thess, mahal na yung P25 each para sa Tutubi na laking probinsya. pero masrap naman sya at minsan lang
dodong, blog mo din in case makarating ka. i was surprised di sila mahigpit sa naka-camera
major tom, seems like you have a big appetite hehe

Hi! Thanks for dropping by my art blog lately. I visited your blog one time in the past but I think you're too busy to respond to my comment. Thanks for posting Art In The Park. I never saw one before in Manila or suburbs, when I was a fine arts students. It's something that interest me. Love art in the park because of it's relaxing atmosphere.

dodong, bancheto ba yun? pag napunta ka baka magkita tayo makikilala kita ako di mo makikilala :)
- At Aug 31, 2009, 2:17:00 PM, dodong flores said...
Tama nga. Banchetto pala (may Multiply website sila: http://banchetto.multiply.com/). Palagi ko itong madadaanan tuwing maaga ang punta ko sa Quezon City tapos pagbalik ko sa Shaw Blvd. via Ortigas Center, madaanan ko ito. Medyo abala nga minsan kasi ang Julia Vargas bound lane ay ginagawang two-lane kasi yung other side naman ang ino-occupy ng market.
Paano kasi kita makilala eh masyadong private ang personality mo :D :D :D Wala man lang photo mo over the net... :)
