Meet Robin Tan

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.”
