One Typical Day at the Market

One Typical day at the Bangued Public Market. A place where the rich and the poor co-mingle to buy basic necessities for everyday survival.

    • REPLY TO TAGA-BAKIR POSTING ON DEC. 11, 2012:..

      SIR, the veggies that were seen in Bangued Market namely…head-lettuce, cauliflower

      carrots, beans, eggplants, patatoes, head-garlics were grown in many parts of the

      province of Benguet brought down to Baguio City Market for distribution.

      Now then, business entrepenuers from Bangued go to Baguio and purchase these veggies to

      sell in Bangued Central Market.

      I don’t have anything against these Bangued entrepeneurs doing ‘business’. But

      transporting these veggies to Bangued add additional cost to the people of Bangued.

      How do I (Dr. Leo) know this…because I practice Medicine/Surgery and as a

      SURGICAL CONSULTANT of the BAGUIO GENERAL HOSPITAL for several years after my training

      (1963) in the USA. I know and have seen the gardens where these veggies are grown.

      Logic tells us that ABRA being a member of the Cordillera provinces because of its

      topographical features/location and height (above sea level).

      KABABAYANS, ABRENIANS are different tribe of TINGGUIAN perhaps from that of the Benguet

      people none-the-less most are farmers by heart can raise in the province of Abra the

      same veggies.

      After 30 years practice of Surgical/Medical in the city of MARTINSVILLE,

      INDIANA, USA., I went in retirement, down-sized my house into condominium with a

      limited yard space. I went into ‘home gardening’ as a hobby.

      I have developed a way that I can produce veggies for a family 5-6 in a garden plot

      that measures ‘8 ft x 4 ft’. Veggies namely.. String beens, Tomatoes, Zukini(squash),

      Chinese celery, pechay, spinach, green onions, garlic-heads, sugar snap peas (mostly

      green leafy vegetables– easy to grow and my MOTTO is “only grow veggies you like

      best to eat”).

      I would like to share my knowledge in ‘Home Gardening’ to Abrenians who wishes

      to learn. I would prefer for those interested to use their ‘true name not NOM de

      PLUME name’ in this Website to communicate with me. Don’t be afraid my friends,

      you’re on a safe ground… ‘Home gardening’ not in politics.

      • I agree with Dr. Tuazon. Lot of veggies being transported to the province of Abra from Baguio. If only local officials encourage local people living in municipalities with the same climate with Baguio it would be a great help.
