10 Lip-Smackingly Delicious Goodies Waiting For You At The Harvest To Goodness Weekend Market
The weekend market that benefits Filipino farmers, fishermen, and restaurant owners offers safe in-venue shopping, pre-ordering services, as well as cashless deliveries and pick-ups!
We know. And we're sad about it, too. The freedom to be out and about as we please and dine in our go-to restaurants is still far from reach, but that doesn't mean that we can't enjoy food made from the freshest of produce and the best of local ingredients in the comfort of our own homes.
Lucky for us, a handful of creative and enterprising bodies in the food business have put their minds together to fill the gap—not only to satisfy our deepest, most persistent cravings, but also to lend a helping hand to our farmers, fishermen, and restaurant owners that all play a part in bringing our favorite food to life!

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: Last July 17, Megaworld Lifestyle Malls, in partnership with the Department Of Agriculture, RestoPH, and KADIWA, launched the Harvest to Goodness Weekend Market at Eastwood City, showcasing a wide selection of fresh produce and farm-to-table food choices, which you can buy directly from local farmers and participating restaurants. Catch the Harvest to Goodness Weekend Market from 8AM to 7PM at the following malls: • July 17 to 19 and July 24 to 26 at Eastwood Central Plaza • July 31 to August 2 at McKinley Hill • August 7 to 9 at Uptown Bonifacio #MegaworldLifestyleMalls #RestoPH #HarvestToGoodness
The Department of Agriculture, Megaworld Lifestyle Malls, and non-profit food group RestoPH have banded together to bring us a little something called The Harvest to Goodness Weekend Market. The initiative is straightforward: members of agricultural communities from all over the country are given an opportunity to sell their products, while select restaurant owners also have the chance to offer their dishes to patrons old and new, albeit in a different setting.
The market is scheduled to open its doors this weekend (July 25 and 26) at Eastwood City.
But as lovely as that sounds, the question you might ask now is, "Well, what about safety protocols? A weekend market sounds like a nice break from quarantine life but how does the event guarantee shoppers' safety?"

They've got that covered, too.
While The Harvest to Goodness Weekend Market is mainly a physical event (that follows health SOPs, of course), organizers have opened other channels for shoppers who wish to remain at home, or even within their vehicles.
Here's what you should know should you wish to shop at the weekend market without physically visiting the venue:
Deliveries are possible
You'll need to download two apps for this: MyKuya and PayMaya. MyKuya is a personal shopper service, while PayMaya should aid you with cashless shopping. LaLaMove and Mr. Speedy are also available to deliver food from participating restaurants.
Pre-orders can be made, too
Eastwood City's official Facebook page has all the contact details of vendors and shoppers can directly coordinate with them via messenger, Viber, or through vendor websites for pre-orders and payment details. Over the weekend, orders can simply be picked up at Eastwood Central Plaza's curbside pickup station.
Now that you have a better idea of how everything works, we move on to the main event: a list of all the yummy goodies waiting for shoppers at The Harvest to Goodness Weekend Market!
