Robin Tan, our puto/kutsinta/kakanin vendor has been with us for the last 7 to 8 years and has been selling his 4-generations old puto for 15 years. He leaves Lipa at 3 in the morning every Saturday to get to the Market on time. His products are made from pure rice flour and have no additives. They are usually sold out by 10 am.
From his earnings, he was able to pay off all his debts and rebuild their farm in Lipa which was wiped out by Typhoon Rosing.
He says the Market allowed him to stay in the Philippines ( he had plans of migrating to Canada ) and continue employing his farm hands and puto vendors.
Always cheerful and smiling even at the end of a hot, tiring day. That’s how Robin is. His secret? ” Pray lang palagi. Enjoy your work and never get tired.”

Tita Ope Lopez, one of the top sellers in the Salcedo Community Market, has been selling her home-cooked food since 2006. She serves each and every customer herself until lunch time with her gracious Southern touch. ” I enjoy the athmosphere here in the Market and like to share the food I cook for my family. ”
Her pasta dishes, callos, chili con carne, bread pudding and many other dishes are always sold out. Every bite will remind you of home and of food cooked with love.

Meet Louie, another inspiring and hardworking vendor at the Salcedo Community Market. On weekends, he wakes up very early to walk and push his cart to JVelasquez Park from Pateros. “Hindi bale na po na mapagod ako basta mayroon akong pera para sa mga anak ko.” He has 3 children ( 17, 11 and 3 years old) and gets 90% of their needs from his boiled peanut sales. His peanuts are good and he always serves with a smile. More power to you Louie!
