Greenfield Weekend Market Mandaluyong information

Greenfield Open Park



Tucked within the Greenfield District along United Street in Mandaluyong is Greenfield Open Park, a weekend go-to place for market-goers. People flock the park on Saturdays as it hosts the Greenfield Weekend Market, one of the weekend fairs like Legaspi Sunday Market, Sidcor Sunday Market, and Salcedo Sunday Market that have sprung around Metro Manila. Located in an open green space surrounded by plenty of neighboring shops, cafés, and restaurants, this weekend fair offers various items and bargains.

Attend and you’ll see why it’s no wonder this weekend market is a go-to place for shoppers—from great local products to bits and bobs, everything seems buyable! Aside from a wide selection of goods and unique finds, you can also enjoy cheap eats and acoustic beats from live bands. The weekend market, which is free to the public, is held every Saturday at 4:00 PM until 12:00 AM, so expect massive crowds strolling around the open field during these hours.

Ready your eco bags for the selection of knick-knacks and unique pieces that you can bring home. Several participating local and vintage vendors offer heart-warming collectibles, fashion blings, artworks, crafts, and even houseplants. You may spend a minimum of PhP100–PhP150 for fashion accessories, plus more for other kinds of products. There are also display of pre-loved books and branded items like Louis Vuitton that can sate your shopping lust. As exciting as these may already be, you can also encounter a feng shui expert to improve your luck.


Foodie Finds

More popular than ever are the gourmet eats offered by food vendors. Rain or shine, food stalls line the park with an array of dishes like crispy bagnet (fried crispy pork belly), pork sisig (chopped pig and chicken liver), shawarma, barbecue, and even supplies of raw meat like longganisa (Spanish sausage) and tapa (cured beef). For healthier eats, you can purchase fresh and organic fruits and vegetables like watermelons, mangoes, eggplants, and more.

Light refreshments like buko (coconut) juice, iced tea, dalandan (sour orange)-flavored tea, and much more are also available. You don’t have to worry about looking for a dining table because picnic tables are ready and provided for diners.


Live Band

To keep the night alive, the market is serenaded by a live band. Starting at around 6:00 to 7:00 PM, live music can be heard as musicians take the stage. The grassy field then becomes a picnic spot and a place for bonding with friends and families. While visitors fill their appetite, the band plays light beats and soft music to entertain them. They also accommodate song requests from the audience.

A note to consider: Opt to visit the market during fair weather to enjoy the gigs and activities.


How to get there:

Greenfield Open Park is accessible via bus or the Metro Rail Transit (MRT). Drop off at MRT Shaw Boulevard Station and make the quick 10-minute walk towards the Greenfield District. The place also has a vast parking area.
