We’re a family who loves to eat. In fact, we bond over food, whether it may be here at our home or in some restaurant.
My hubby, who must have been a chef in his past life, loves to experiment in the kitchen. Our two girls plan on becoming chefs in the future. Our youngest, who’s just three years old, loves to eat and watch his dad cook. I used to be such a hopeless case in the kitchen. But I’m proud to say that in the past three years, I’ve learned a lot and can actually say that I do know how to cook now. Hahaha!
When we’re not at home though, we love to explore new places to eat. Hubby is more adventurous with food so he’s often the one who introduces us to new dishes while I’m usually the one who scours the Internet for news about new restaurants opening.
This is why I became so excited when I first read about The Urban Food Collective online. Let me tell you what it’s all about.
“The Urban Food Collective (TUFC) understands that food brings people together, that food is at the center of some of life’s best moments. Its vision is to be the premiere food community in the country.
Current, informative, and educational, TUFC aims to be the food hub where people can share their passion for gastronomy. TUFC’s online community will feature everything food – articles and recipes, exciting deals featuring the country’s best culinary fare, and “The Urban Food Collective Marketplace” which will retail unique food items and implements. To bring the online community even closer together, TUFC will champion various food lifestyle events, where foodies can meet and indulge in their passion for unique flavors and gustatory delights.
What’s love for food when you have no one to share it with? Let The Urban Food Collective be your community for food. Stay hungry for the good things in life.
The Urban Food Collective Weekend Market:
The Urban Food Collective Weekend Market is a carefully curated collection of purveyors. Located in CommerCenter, Alabang’s newest lifestyle mall, it is a place where people can comfortably gather, browse, and shop. It will be a venue for patrons to find a bevy of treasures from gourmet, specialty foods to local, artisanal arts and crafts. The Weekend Market’s activities and pocket events will give them the opportunity to learn new things or simply engage with the community.
For purveyors, it will be an opportunity to showcase their goods to a truly discerning crowd, while providing them with a gateway to other business opportunities with The Urban Food Collective. Also recognizing its responsibility to society, The Urban Food Collective will donate a portion of the proceeds from the Weekend Market to the Taguyod Bayan foundation, helping rebuild communities affected by typhoon Haiyan in Sara Iloilo”.
I’m so happy that something like this is happening not too far from our place. I used to frequent weekend markets in Makati back when we used to live there. At least, now there’s going to be a weekend market nearer to us. I can already imagine the selection of food that we’re sure to find there. So exciting!
I also love that the organizers thought to include kiddie activities, raffles and even a gentlemen’s corner! For sure, it’s going to be a fun place to go with the whole family. I hope to see you guys there!
