Tiangge sa Lopez

“Tiangge” is a Tagalog word for a flea market where products and items can be bought at a cheaper price. In our hometown (Lopez, Quezon), it is scheduled every Tuesday, Friday and Sunday mornings.

 

Hi-res photos can be viewed here:

As I promised myself that after a short visit to our hometown in 2014 I will try to come back to take more photos of our market (I used to sell tomatoes, spices and other items when I was a teen, helping my eldest sister).

Nine months after, I was back again in the Philippines for my annual vacation.  I spent 3 days in my father’s house and arranged the photo walk with a fellow photographer from our group – Lopez Photography Club.  We did it on a Friday to catch the flea market where more vendors and more people will be around.
