    Pagudpud Vendors' Cooperative: Shellcraft & Other Souvenir Items

    by cyndymc Written Feb 7, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Pagudpud Vendors' Cooperative is a row of handicraft makers/vendors on the shoreline of Pagupud. The vendors have uniform pricing (though you can haggle by whispering to the vendor your desired price), they don 't do hard-sell of their stuff, they allow tourists to touch and choose the souvenir items without pressure, very much unlike the situation in other beaches in the country.

    What to buy: shellcraft, baskets, native jewelry, table top items, key chains, etc

    What to pay: Your P100 will already buy you 3-4 souvenir items.

    San Nicolas Market & Batac Market: Take home local delicacies & crafts

    by gypsysoul73 Written May 22, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    San Nicolas market is the place known for it's mountains of bagnet on display. It was a clean wet market with rows and rows of vibrantly-hued vegetables and fruits. At the end is where you'll find it. A separate room for the bagnet and longganisa. Lots of them piled high underneath ropes of longganisa.

    We also went to the Batac market for dry goods such as abel table runners, placemats and table napkins. Here I bought Nana Meng's chichacorn (best chichacorn ever!) in bbq and cheese flavors (they had run out of the garlic flavor) as pasalubong for the people at work.

    no name: Roadside shopping

    by gypsysoul73 Written Apr 3, 2008

    Aside from the Bakery, Pasuquin is also famous for it's salt factories and roadside stalls along the country road that sell the fine sea salt in large plastic bags. Salt-making is a traditional livelihood in these parts, passed down from generation to generation. Aside from salt, the stalls also carry bundles of native crops such as garlic and shallots and bottles of sukang Iloko (or Ilokano vinegar). I couldn't resist photographing the kids who were helping their mom with the business. It was their fault I bought much more than I needed. :)

    Souvenirs in Pagudpud

    by nhikhita_07 Written Apr 9, 2007

    What to buy: Unfortunately, we didn't find souvenir shops in Pagudpud though the Polaris resort, where we stayed, have their own personalized shirts but their designs were unattractive and not worth for being pricey. When we reached Laoag before going back to manila, we looked for a small time department store that has Ilocos shirts having only simple desgins or prints.

    What to pay: White shirt - Php150+

    Palenge (Market): Chichacorn and Longanisa

    by xynna Written Apr 13, 2005

    What to buy: Common pasalubong from Ilocos Norte is the Chichacorn and the Longanisa. At the amount of less than 50 pesos you'll have a big plastic of chichacorn and can make your jaws drop. Also best buy in town is their famous longanisa.

    What to pay: For your convenience, use the Philippine peso, or use cash money.
