Most folks will tell you their vegetables come from the highlands of Baguio City, but the simple truth is that there just isn't enough land there anymore for vegetables. The biggest vegetable markets are still located in Baguio and in nearby Trinidad valley, but most of them are now produced in the nearby towns of Atok and Buguias in Benguet, up to three hours north along the Halsema highway.
When you drive along this highway, you will know what I mean. Every productive patch and nook is dedicated to growing veggies. The weather is cool, the sun abundant, and water is everywhere. This is where our vegetables really come from. Enjoy.
(Pixel-peepers: One can spend a week here and still not run out of stuff to photograph! And because it can often-times be cloudy, watch for dramatic light as fast-moving clouds momentarily block the sun in an endless struggle for supremacy. Brocolli in Baguio can be just P30/kg on a weekday. Can you imagine what they might sell for right on the farm?)
