Christmas isn’t just a time for giving and parties, it is also the perfect time to stride and stay up late to visit various express bazaars all over the metro.
While the traffic can be excruciatingly bad, lines awfully long, and establishments flocked by last-minute buyers looking to land at good deals, shopping at these Christmas bazaars promise great treats and rare finds you will never have gotten in an ordinary mall.
Below is a list of ongoing Christmas bazaars all over the metro this 2018.
Valle Verde 1 Christmas Bazaar
Feel the exuberant Christmas rush at the exclusive subdivision Valle Verde. The Christmas Bazaar is typically conducted every year between December 1 -2 and 8 -9. Starting at 10:00 in the morning and closes at 8:00 in the evening, you are sure to grab great deals as they offer special promos. The bazaar is open to all. You can enjoy their affordable refreshing drinks and mouth-watering food delights while marveling at the Christmas displays.

Looking for a place to satiate your voracious appetite? Then the Parestival in N.S. Amoranto Ave, Barangay pang Bundo at Maginhawa Street is the right place to be. Centering on the popular dish Pares, the bazaar is set to feed gourmet geeks with a fusion of different Filipino delicacies across all regions. Though it would be a one-day bazaar, it offers a ton of activities that will keep you pumped up-all-night which includes Community Zumba, Food presentations, food competition, games, car show, and Music Festival.

This sure has been a tradition for us Filipinos. This bazaar is known for being the grandest, largest, and most comprehensive Christmas bazaar in the metro. Ranging from 1,000 differently chosen merchants in clothing, food, beverages, and rides, the 4,000 annual patrons of this bazaar can’t get enough of it as it offers different products at affordable prices ideal for Christmas binge shopping. What makes this bazaar truly exceptional is that it partners with local foundations including GMA Kapuso Foundation where half of the proceeds are donated. Pre-loved stuff of GMA celebrities is even sold here to show solidarity to the spirit of giving during the holiday season. The bazaar streak starts at the World Trade Center on November 15 to 30, to the Filinvest Tent Alabang on November 29 to December 2, December 13 to 16 and December 20 to 23, then to its final stop at the SMX Convention Center MOA on December 14 to 23.

But whatever you may come up with, the thought of remembering them and giving them something is what makes it truly memorable and exceptional.
