What’s more, guests can either enjoy a feast of holiday flavors or take some out as presents for their loved ones. They can take a pick from meat delicacies of D’Famous Imus Longganisa, bottled home- made Muesli of Grapevine Desserts, the luscious confections of Risa Chocolates, or boxed merienda staples of Casa Empanada and Chicken Relleno House.
A Weekend Market with a Heart
For the first time, Mandala Park serves as a venue for communities to give back in this season of hope. The current installment will be held in support of Kcat Yarza, author of the book KCAT CAN - I have a pen that writes.
Diagnosed with Neurofibromatosis, Kcat has multiple tumors in her body that need medical attention. She turned to writing to support her expensive medical needs. A compilation of her deep, emotional, and inspiring personal accounts, Kcat’s book allows people to see the beauty in life no matter what the circumstances may be.
Mandala Park also offers its enclosure as a drop-off point for donations to around 1000 families who lost their homes to the fire that razed the Addition Hills neighborhood, 1 kilometer near the enclave, last November 25.
Visitors can also give back by advocating for a movement that valorizes our own farmers. Mandala Park welcomes the Mahalin Pagkaing Atin (MPA) movement by allowing guests to celebrate the holidays in support of a cause that encourages homegrown food. A box of Mahalin Pagkaing Atin treats gets visitors to help out in providing sustainable livelihood businesses to places with high incidences of poverty, disasters, and conflict.
Indulge in a Bountiful Holiday Feast
After the day’s shopping, visitors can sit down and unwind with good food as household names like Sapin Sapin, Mister Delicious and Ribs Manila serve up classic holiday eats that capture the warmth of the season. Gostoso Piri Piri, Wrapped Shawarma, I Am Kim, B&T Mexican Kitchen, and Chili Asylum are also there to fire up spicy cravings, while Edgy Veggy and Pipino Vegetarian puts the healthy twist that people’s weight-watching appetite seeks.
A Christmas feast won’t be merry without the desserts. Set to satisfy visitors’ sweet tooth are saccharine treats served by newcomer Earnest Bakes, along with Mandala Park mainstay Scout's Honor and Fog City Creamery. In addition, Stanford & Shaw is back to freshen everyone with their ginger ale, along with choice beverages courtesy of Fruit Magic’s Pure Nectar line, Pedro Brew Crafters, and Bulletproof Coffee.
Aside from the delectable grub, guests will be treated to jazz renditions of classic Christmas songs as the Mandala Park holiday market features music from Homeward Bound and the Vince Lahorra Quartet.
The Mandala Park holiday market is Litton & Co.’s way of giving back to the community by handing them a venue for bringing people together in celebration of the Christmas spirit. With amazing finds, relaxing music, and hearty homegrown food, the Mandala Park holiday market inspires people to bask in the warmth of Yuletide cheer.
