The Urban Food Collective Weekend Market


The Urban Food Collective (TUFC) understands that food brings people together, that food is at the center of some of life’s best moments. Its vision is to be the premiere food community in the country.
Current, informative, and educational, TUFC aims to be the food hub where people can share their passion for gastronomy.  TUFC’s online community will feature everything food – articles and recipes, exciting deals featuring the country’s best culinary fare, and “The Urban Food Collective Marketplace” which will retail unique food items and implements. To bring the online community even closer together, TUFC will champion various food lifestyle events, where foodies can meet and indulge in their passion for unique flavors and gustatory delights.

What’s love for food when you have no one to share it with? Let The Urban Food Collective be your community for food. Stay hungry for the good things in life.


The Urban Food Collective Weekend Market:
The Urban Food Collective Weekend Market is a carefully curated collection of purveyors. Located in CommerCenter, Alabang’s newest lifestyle mall, it is a place where people can comfortably gather, browse, and shop. It will be a venue for patrons to find a bevy of treasures from gourmet, specialty foods to local, artisanal arts and crafts. The Weekend Market’s activities and pocket events will give them the opportunity to learn new things or simply engage with the community.

For purveyors, it will be an opportunity to showcase their goods to a truly discerning crowd, while providing them with a gateway to other business opportunities with The Urban Food Collective.  Also recognizing its responsibility to society, The Urban Food Collective will donate a portion of the proceeds from the Weekend Market to the Taguyod Bayan foundation, helping rebuild communities affected by typhoon Haiyan in Sara Iloilo.

To all our dear friends in the South, THE URBAN FOOD COLLECTIVE Weekend Market is opening soon near you! The market would showcase well-curated selections of both food and non-food purveyors.

This is great! I love an emphasis on local and organic food. We eat too much processed food nowadays

What a wonderful place. I would love to visit one of these and browse to see the fresh food. I am so going to miss my own garden. I grow whatever I can every Spring, and all summer long. Now I go to Farmers Market downtown.. it's exciting really!

This type of event is right up my alley. Looks like kids would also enjoy as well with the kiddie workshops. Glad they are also taking donations for those affected by the typhoon.

This is an awesome thing to help others in need. I love the concept of it . Thanks for sharing.

What's so great is that not only does it help others, but it allows the businesses that participate to be able to branch out. If only they could do something like this everywhere!
