It isn’t every day that you come across a one-stop haven for all the things you like, let alone a mall with everything you need. Yet, in the middle of the Bonifacio Global City sits a mall so special, we have to say its name twice: Market! Market!

Since opening in September 2004, Market! Market! continues to redefine the metro’s shopping landscape. It has a little bit of everything for just about everyone. Located at Bonifacio Global City, Taguig, it has all the essentials, including National Book Store, Mercury Drug, Kodak and Ace Hardware. Medical needs are taken care of in the medical clinics in the mall, such as Health way and Dental City, while the various beauty salons, spas, and skin care centers like Dermstrata, Bench Fix, and California Nails and Day Spa ensure you’ll always look your best for any occasion. Banks, optical shops, music stores, and Internet cafes are also located in the mall.

A FIESTA INSIDE A MARKET

At Market! Market!, you can fulfill your marketing and shopping needs all under one roof. With a wide selection of succulent fruits, garden-fresh vegetables, meat, seafood, rice, and other wet market staples, shopping at Fiesta Market is, indeed, a fiesta. Regional carts and kiosks around Fiesta Market let you experience the turones de casoy of Pampanga, the dried crispy shrimp native to Aklan, the biscocho and butterscotch bars of Bacolod, the strawberry treats of the summer capital Baguio; and the spicy dishes of beautiful Bicol, among others.
