The Market Is a Long-Standing, One-Stop Community Shop in Salcedo Village
Standing firm on the ground floor of Tiffany Place in Salcedo Village is The Market, a one-stop neighborhood store that has undoubtedly mastered the art of keeping up with the changing times since it opened in 2002.
The Market foremost sees to it that it readily provides every single thing that is needed to enjoy one meal—from the deli meats down to the wines. Apart from being an all-encompassing grocery store, it is also a place for people who need a quick bite.
Some of the grocery items and ready-to-eat meals available at The Market
The Market offers an array of premium deli meats that are pure meat to the brim, with no extenders and whatnot for the sake of a good selling appearance. Some of the store’s fast-moving items are bacon, Hungarian sausage, and smoked farmer’s ham.
It also features a variety of cheese choices including the Malagos Cheese (Php 3,075/kg) from Davao, upon which the store takes pride in as it is the only retail supplier of the product.

The wine selection, on the other hand, touches on both the old world and the new world, though variants of the latter such as Australian, Chilean, and Spanish wines seem to fit the palate of the regular customers more. Prices of the wines start at Php 300.
For all the dessert enthusiasts, you can choose from two local ice cream brands at The Market: Carmen’s Best Ice Cream and Sebastian’s Ice Cream, which can be purchased starting at Php 120.

Cuban Sandwich (Php 320), above others, greets you with an extremely fresh flavor that is emitted by the rightly piled smoked farmer’s ham, pork loin, and salami meat pieces in between a pair of soft ciabatta bread.
And of course, one cannot miss the mozzarella cheese that does the job of rousing the taste buds with its smooth and salty tang.

Another constant favorite is the Four Cheese Pizza (Php 250). It’s a solo-size variant that boasts actual minced tomatoes, hence the pure taste of sourness complementing its layers of cheesy essence.

Inarguably, caesar salad has always been a classic regardless of where it is bought, and included in such a narrative is that of The Market.
The lettuce of its Caesar Salad with Smoked Chicken (Php 275) somehow paints an abstract picture of the farm from where they are newly harvested—and rightly so because The Market’s vegetable selections are delivered fresh every day.
What’s more is that this salad is overlaid with thin but thickly-flavored smoked chicken, as well as little cubes of crispy bread pieces that are made even more delightful to eat by its salad dressing.
