Philippine Harvest is an agricultural fair mounted regularly by the Department of Tourism and Stores Specialists Inc. (SSI) in Central Square, Bonifacio Global City. I always look forward to this bazaar because I get to discover great farm-to-table finds, organic produce and other outstanding stuff that’s proudly Made in the Philippines,
The recent 8th edition of Philippine Harvest dubbed “Celebration of Philippine Food Destinations” was graced no less by the new DOT Secretary Berna Romulo-Puyat, members of the diplomatic corps and noted foodies.

Anyway, what’s good about Philippine Harvest is that guests and shoppers get to to sample all the good products made by Filipino farmers, food makers and artisans.
When it comes to chocolates, look no further than Theo & Pilo, they have these exotic flavors. Auro chocs from Davao were also a revelation, it’s good enough to be exported to other Asian countries like Japan.
The Pansit Kalabuko made by the Forest Wood Garden in San Pablo City, Laguna is a must-try. This is possibly one of the healthiest noodles you can taste since it’s made up of grated squash, coconut, mushrooms and other vegetables.
The Costales Nature Farms stand sold freshly-made salads for only P75….yay!
Coveted sweet mangoes from Guimaras…

We can’t wait for the next fair 🙂
