Araneta City Holds Gawang Lokal Bazaar For PH Independence Day

For great locally-made finds, check out the Gawang Lokal Bazaar in Ali Mall

As the Philippines celebrates 125 years of independence, Araneta City is shining a light on local wares yet again! The Gawang Lokal Bazaar (Locally Made Bazaar) is currently ongoing at Ali Mall, showcasing a number of items made by Filipinos for Filipinos.

Many bags, baskets as well as other woven products can be seen here, a nod to the country’s rich historical ties to the art of weaving. A quick scan of the booths will also reveal a wide selection of items such as wooden utensils & dishware, pottery and even a sungka table!
