Festino Weekend Market adds sparkle in Filinvest City

I spent 5 years living in Alabang. I have heard of some weekend markets inside an exclusive village during those times but since the place is not accessible by public transport, I never had the chance to take even a glance at it. I have heard that weekend marketplace is where you'll find quality products that are locally sourced and that it is a preview of the lifestyle of the area, giving visitors a taste of the lives the locals lead. I never had the chance to immerse myself in the culture of the usual run-of-the-mill marketplace back then that's why when I got an invite to join the launch of the Festino weekend market, it made me so excited; aside from the fact that I will revisit the place that has been an important part of my life.


Festino promises to be a different kind of weekend market. As the newest lifestyle and entertainment destination located at the heart of the south, its tasteful ambiance sets it apart from the frantic, stressful seasonal markets that spring up across the metro during this merry season. It is poised to showcase only the most passionate of local cooks and crafters, with a wide selection of goods that are unique, fresh and designed to inspire—or satiate the palate!

Festino features numerous merchants like Three Guys and a Grill, Cafe 2.0, GMCS Farms, Kapoke PH, Jam Foods Tapa, Thorny Guy and more; where visitors can shop and experience delightful treats.

Best of all is the carefully curated entertainment options, with art appreciation/classes to create a multi-sensorial experience to please the senses. It’s a mixture of food, art, and music all set in a tasteful setting, inspired by yet moving a step above the conventional urban markets. Likewise, get involved with the different recreational activities such as yoga, photo styling workshop, watercolor session and more. 


That's not all! Catch a glimpse of the hottest cars on showcase and even test drive it. From the high performance, Lotus to the iconic MINI and even the classic Vespa are bringing in zest to the whole Festino market. Likewise, get enticed with the Piaggio’s Ape customized interiors to fit in with your market fancy.

Festino market was launched together with Filinvest City’s Annual Christmas Light Show on November 23, Thursday. Now on it’s 5th year run, it has become the most anticipated light show in the South gathering increasing numbers of visitors yearly. In 2017, the Light Show’s highlight is a 40-foot 3D Mapped Tree featuring visuals that represent the holiday cheer. As happy visitors to previous editions of Filinvest City’s Christmas Light Show have come to expect, the hourly weekend show at the Spectrum Midway is a delight to look forward to.


The Festino Weekend Market is every weekends (Fridays-Sundays, 4PM onwards) starting November 23, 2017. Filinvest City Christmas Light Show is ongoing daily starting at 6PM. There will be live band concerts on Saturdays and Christmas Carols on Sundays.
