- This is a community market that only opens on a Saturday. They have another one in Legaspi st. Tables to dine are disallowed, due to the prevailing health protocols. So only option was for a take away. Food finds are really nice, especially the fruits and novelty produce. But be wary of the time schedule. They close by 2 pm. At 1 pm many of them are starting to pack up, since they already ran out of something to sell. People trickled in as early as it opens at around 9 am.Written 26 February 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Mahogany Market is one of those tourist destinations often touted whenever you are in Tagaytay. Tagaytay is known for its fresh beef products and right on top of the beef market is a row of eateries where you can partake of their beef signature dish, bulalo.
Right across the meat market are two buildings. One for dried goods such as coffee, native delicacies, etc. We bought suman pinipig after being given a free taste. It was good but a little pricey at PHP20 each. Suman pinipig can be bought at less than PHP20 each in other places. But we didn't care because we were there already and we liked the sample.
We also bought salted eggs at 7/P100 which the vendor sourced from Laguna. We wanted to have a salted egg salad as a supplement to our breakfast. And since we already had salted eggs, we bought fresh tomatoes and onions at the second floor of the next building.
Thus, all in all, there are three buildings at Mahogany Market. The first building where they have their beef produce and eateries, The second where they have their dry goods and pasalubongs. And the third where they have fresh vegetables.
Overall, Mahogany Market could be a good first stop for food and fresh produce (except beef) when you are in Tagaytay. It could also be your last stop as you depart Tagaytay because you can eat at the different eateries where they serve almost identical dishes. And after the hearty meal, do some cheap (by Tagaytay standards) pasalubong shopping and also buy fresh produce.
Prices are not really much different and could be at times more pricey from Manila prices especially if you buy in Balintawak or Divisoria markets. So if you don't want to tote extra bags going back to Manila, I suggest just stick to the light stuff, i.e. native delicacies for pasalubong, ground coffee, etc.
Finally, Mahogany Market is different from the Tagaytay public market, found just behind the Tagaytay Flower Market right before a rotonda. Tagaytay public market, we were told, is where the locals buy their goods and restaurants source their fresh produce . But we weren't able to explore it as much as Mahogany.Written 31 March 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Good value but Again beware of electrical products accessories they tend to show you the good ones and then give you the cheap rubbish he was supposedly in a new box if the phone comes in a blue box do not take it it’s that cheap rubbish anyone that they will push on you apart from that everything else is a good marketWritten 14 March 2020
- If you want really cheap stuff in Manila, you head to Divisoria.
It's basically a whole suburb of shops and market stalls that sell retail, but at wholesale prices.
It's where Sari Sari store and shop owners from all over the Philippines go to buy in bulk.
The Grab driver told us to be careful and on the lookout for pick pockets.
We had nothing in our pockets and wore our backpacks in front.
We saw all sorts of interesting people, and some were really friendly (as the photos will show).
Very diverse and interesting place for sure.
Trying to get a Grab (Grab is like Uber) out of Divisoria was a battle.
Took over an hour of waiting in the heat and trying to find a car to take our booking.
Eventually we got a ride, and i asked the driver why the GPS wasn't picking up any cars in the area.
He said the drivers don't want to go there because it's too dangerous.
Maybe so, but here were 2 Aussies traipsing round the place, and judging by the inquisitive stares from the locals, we must have been standing out to the max, and we were never bothered, nor felt threatened.
Stop and chat to the locals, show respect, and it will come back to you tenfold.
Never saw a single solitary tourist the whole 3 hours or so we were there.
It was magnificent !Written 5 May 2022
- I was told to be careful from pickpockets in this area. Still, the whole complex was a fun way to know the local vibe and atmosphere of Baguio.
Try to find the area where the locals are buying their stuff. Otherwise the ‘tourist zone’ is still a good place to be.Written 14 December 2021
- While smaller than other open-air weekend markets, for the area it is still a good weekend event for you. Live music, games, and contests are commonly happening here. You'll also find your typical street food vendors and a few foreign foods as well. A little BBQ, some sausage, squid, fish, pancit, and fruit shakes are common. Even if you eating these things are not for you the area is surrounded by other restaurants, many with alcohol and other games for you. While the area is not as lively as places like BGC, Manila, or Ayala this is still a good place to go, without having to travel hours during rush hour.Written 4 July 2020
- Stumbled upon this great street food market in the middle of the BGC. Variety of Filipino options as well as international too freshly cooked to order. Great way to sample the delicacies of the Philippines.Written 9 March 2020
- Whenever I go to food parks, I get confused on what I want to eat because I would want to taste everything :)
There are alot of choices and if you go on the weekends. The place is packed!
I love the ambiance! Very instagramworthy!Written 7 January 2019
- A place to find cheap home decors and my favorite finds are the wooden plates that are much cheaper compare to mall prizes. And it's not crowded at all if you go early in the morning.Written 26 April 2019
- I love going here when I want to bring my dog for grooming.. The stores and restaurants here are good. The place is big so even during these times of coronavirus, they implement safety protocol.Written 25 June 2020
- Great place for morning visit to see bountiful catch from the sea. Fish trade early morning for fish, crabs and lots of seafood. Although it's slippery and wet, and need to get use to the smell and sound of fish port. Wholesaler and fish trader coverage every day to get best price.Written 2 June 2018
- I'm not sure why it's listed as a thing-to-do. It just seems your common place. In fact, it's crowded and noisy given it's near the very busy road. It does, however, offers a good place for souvenirs, clothing, repair shops, eateries, and others. Also, it's very accessible.Written 16 January 2018
