Weekend Street Market

One of the many things I love about Sagada is the street market on weekends where people would sell fresh produce from all over.

A traditional Sagada House

Sagada, formerly called Ganduyan, is a quaint and quiet town of Mountain Province tucked away in the stunning mountains of Northern Luzon – 12 hours drive north of Manila, 5-6 hours north of Baguio City and about 2 hours further from the provincial capital, Bontoc.

Lumiang Coffins

Sagada is known for its traditional way of burying the dead – one way is by stacking the coffins at the opening of a cave like in Lumiang.

The Dap-Ay
       
     
The Dap-Ay

A dap-ay is a tiny house for children. As early as the age of 5, kids are sent to the dap-ays where they are taught by village elders, and this is where they spend the rest of their childhood until they get married. There are separate dap-ays for girls and boys. However, this tradition is slowly dying out and all that remains are empty dap-ays as less and less parents send their children to the dap-ays.

They grow their own lemons, coffee and blueberries right in their own backyard. The flavours were fresh and truly a delight on the palate. I wish I could find such good fruit pies again!
