Strawberry Farm in nearby La Trinidad, Benguet (about 20 minutes from the city center) Here you could go into the fields and pick the strawberry by yourself. it is an experience well worth priceless event!
What to buy: One highly recommended activity is strawberry picking at the Strawberry Farm.November is the best time to pick fresh strawberries,
What to pay: In general, it costs twice the market price to pick your own strawberries, which folks find strange, especially those who have tried apple or orange picking in orchards in other countries thinking they provide "free labor." and one thing price defend on supply and demand.

Restaurants like Don Henrico's, Sizzling Plate, Greenwhich can be found. Tables were set outside the balcony for al fresco dining

Ok, what is pasalubong? As I explained to my previous tips, pasalubong is a filipino word which means a gift/something you want to give to your loved ones & friends from your trip. It is sort of souviner too. There are many shops around Baguio wherein you can buy a souviner T-shirts, key chains, wood crafts, and lots more! Name it, I think, they got it all for you! ;o) When comes to dessert, they have yummy Ube Jam, Peanut Brittle, Strawberry Jam & Lengua Cookies.

A few meters away from Mines View Park is the Good Shepherd convent that sells Baguio home-made delicacies made by their nuns. My personal favorites are the Ube Jam, the Strawberry Jam and their Peanut Brittle. Although their products are also sold elsewhere in Baguio, getting them directly from the convent assures that you're getting it freshly prepared.
There is also a small garden inside and it also provides a viewing deck where you can have a magnificent view of Baguio.
Proceeds from the sale of these products are being used for the charities sponsored by the nuns and also used for maintaining the compound. Buying them not only feeds your stomach but also feeds your soul. :)
Parking is provided inside the convent but if you need to go back to Mines view park, you may have to circle back since the street going to the convent from Mines view is a one-way street.
It's open only until 5 so be sure to visit it early.
What to buy: Peanut brittle, fruit preserves, ube jam, strawberry jam, other delicacies

What to buy: I highly recommend to try this Binatog, a warm concoction of boiled corn, coconut, sugar and milk When you buy Binatog you will noticed a crowd buying cups of binatog from a vendor This must be a relatively unique Filipino concoction it has just a few ingredients: boiled corn kernels that are intentionally overcooked so that they are literally bursting out of their skins, sugar, grated coconut, and evaporated milk. My kids love this so much
What to pay: You can try this Binatog for Php10 a cup

You can get just about anything you want in the City Market!! You will have to bargain most of the time to get the right price. Sometimes I've been surprised by the vendors offering me a low price without even asking.
What to buy: Even if you don't buy anything the Central Market is a wonderful place to wander and talk with people and just take in the ambience of the place. Some people feel nervous inside as the lighting isn't the best and there are lot's of people. If you feel nervous in those situations don't bring any valuables with you. I've never had a problem there and have visited many times. When you are in the middel of the market it can be tricky finding a way out as there are a maze of stalls!! Just ask someone how to get out and they will point the way. Oh yea... There are many entrances and quite often you will go out in a different area than you went in on. You might want to bring a map of the city with you if it's your first time in the area.

I'm not only a certified chocolate lover but a Fruitlover as well. That's why I love Baguio because they have a fresh, sweet & juicy grapes & strawberries! and YESSS, with fresh vegetables too - best for those vegetarians! You can buy fruits & vegetables in a reasonable price here and more cheaper than prices in lowland.
