We went to the market to buy some pasalubong and food to cook during our stay. Prices are affordable and reasonable.

22 of us trekked to Baguio City via Marcos Highway. The trip was very pleasant especially with the opening of the Tarlac toll, ending in Paniqui, making the road travel to around four and a half hours only.
There are many inexpensive apartelles for group travelers. They are furnished and can cook cheap organic vegetable from the popular Baguio Market that supplies the needs of the lowlands.
Adjacent to Baguio City is La Trinidad Valley, known as the country's salad bowl. Here, they grow strawberries all year round, thanks to technology learned from the Japanese.
Mingling with the natives - Igorots is fun. Many can speak good English because of the Americans who constructed and designed the city. Of course, there are several universities also in the city that provided inexpensive education, the reason why so many foreign students have enrolled there.
Food is inexpensive. A wide variety is available even from the malls, like SM.
Strolling along Session Road at night is a nice experience. And some streets are converted into night markets for promenaders, like those adjacent to picturesque Burnham Park.
An alternate route can be taken using Kennon Road where you get to see the mountain view and zigzag roads that snake through the elevations...
Nice to visit the The Mansion, and the country's President (Noynoy) was vacationing during that time. The Mines View Park is interesting where you can hire Igorot costumes for nice picture memories. The Botanical Garden which is very close to Camp John Hay are places to see. The kids will enjoy cheap horseback riding (about $8.00/hour at the Wright Park) with a wide selection of horses to choose from..
There are many activites and sight in the mountains.
An hour's drive to La Union is great for beach fun, with many Inns or hotels in Bauang or San Fernando.
Main attraction of Baguio is its cool climate, around 11 degrees celsius in December or January. At times, it would drop to about 8-9 degrees.

I'm impressed with the extensive range of locally grown vegetables and fruits. Never leave the market without buying Sagada oranges. They're sweeter, bigger and juicier than the other orange varieties. And do check out the flower section, too. You'll fall in love with the many colors of carnations, stargazers and statices that are sold there.

We usually shop here every week (and sometimes more often). Here are some reasons why I like -
1) Cleanest public market in Philippine s (probably because it is so cool, there is no dust, sweat, flies or smell)

2) Amazingly fresh vegetables and fruits (Most of Philippines, for some inexplicable reason, get most of their veggies from Baguio). Most of the veggies and fruits come from Benguet, while the seafood comes from Pangasinan.

3) Cheap (Potatoes cost just 25 pesos per kg - compare that with Manila where it costs 100-150 pesos per kilo!)

4) Big covered passageways - between rows of shops

Like most public markets, there are separate sections for dry, wet and other household items. Unlike other public markets, there is a complete separate section for flowers! Very pretty - As one of my friends likes to say ... Panagbenga all through the year!
