“While the national government continues to mitigate the effects of Covid 19, our company decided to initiate a community building project with Pasig City, Barangay San Antonio and Ortigas Center Association Inc. (OCAI).”

“This alliance between the private sector and the local government has allowed us to provide a venue for our local producers to sell their products to residents in the Ortigas Center and surrounding areas, says DTC’s President & COO Marissa Dames.

“We are quite excited about the variety of produce offered by our vendor partners, ranging from international and Pinoy cuisine to artisanal products and local crafts.

They range from start-up Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) to veteran entrepreneurs of farmer’s markets.

“My favorite go-to fruit supplier for many years, Adela Muega, is a pioneer of other markets and has made her stake in the Ortigas Market. It is an understatement to say that Adela’s sweet and quality fruits can hold their own place and take center stage at any dessert table. Nothing, but nothing, beats the freshest fruits of the season.”

“Sabroso is how one describes the sinful, delectable, and rich dishes served by Monchet Carballo, owner of Sabor de España. A seasoned advertising and marketing executive who ventured into the food business, Monchet understands the essence of slow-cooked food that is prepared according to traditional techniques using the best ingredients. His paella, bacalao, beef salpicao, callos are simply sublime!

Sustainable Accessories made from sea glass gathered by fisherman for designer Isa Pangilinan and Pet Portraits by her sister Marita De Leon are just two of the unique artisan products that Ortigas Market-goers can look forward to when they visit the area.

Our media partners Manila Bulletin and the ALC Media group which consists of DWIZ and Home Radio along with Business Mirror, Cook Magazine, Health and Fitness, Pilipino Mirror and our Digital Partner Seven Sharp, are all quite supportive of this project and the assistance given to our vendor partners.

We look forward to more exciting events being unveiled at the Ortigas Market.”
