Greenfield district is a combination of residential, commercial, industrial,education and places of worship are located. Used to work at the nearby One San Miguel building few years ago.
Shopping malls, schools and universities are located within 15 to 20 minutes leisurely walk. But the one which attracts foodies even expat community is the Greenfield Weekend Market. The semi-permanent stalls are there for a while and there are live bands performing on a rotation basis.

We were greeted by two friendly sales agent which gave a few insights on the weekend market which according to them were also pet friendly.
Our group decided to eat light snacks and lemonade. The lemons are neatly arranged on ferris wheel.

We explored within the stalls at the back portion. Amaze with some of the stalls selling pre-owned books,vintage items, coins, stamps, portrait sketches, magazines, stickers, coin banks, toys and cassette tapes. There is also a tarot card booth where one can pay a small fee for reading one’s fortune.
My friend also bought 2 pre-owned books, then our group decided to leave the place since it started raining hard and winds blowing off our umbrellas.

Being a collector, I was able to buy some vintage stamps and coins in one of the booth.
framed banknotes, photos, coins and stamps for sale
We were able to ask the security guards on the possibility of other activities within the area like bird watching and guided walk.
Overall, the weather is quite uncooperative but our vintage hauls were the ones that we would cherish.
Our group will surely come back for more exciting food, tree walk, bird watching, chilling down or just walking within the district exploring and admiring mid-century architecture.
Note : Greenfield Weekend Market usually starts from 4:00 pm till 12:00 midnight
