A pop-up shop called Palengke is now open through December 30. “Palengke” is the Tagalog word for “market.” The shop features goods from Hood Famous Bakeshop, pop-up restaurant Food & Sh*t, and vinyl decal and design studio Make Look Good, in addition to other artwork and crafts by Filipino artists and Filipino-themed vintage items. Hood Famous Bakeshop will be selling their Filipino-inspired cheesecakes as well as clothing and mugs. Food & Sh*t will sell bottled sauces and pickles.
Palengke is located on the mezzanine level inside Alchemy Goods (1528 1st Avenue) and is open every day Monday – Friday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Sundays 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
The location previously housed Manila Imports, a Philippine goods store established in 1986 and closed in 2014.
