Vancouver’s super popular Filipino market, Magkasama, which translates to “together” in Tagalog, is officially back this month for another virtual event.
The modern Filipino market saw huge success during its first two physical events last year, and now, it’s back in a different format suitable for these physically distant times we’re living in, this time for the holidays.
This Virtual Filipino Christmas Market will celebrate all the awesome Filipino/Canadian-owned businesses throughout the Lower Mainland, offering folks food, art, music, and more.
The holiday edition of this event will feature 25 vendors serving up everything from delicious cakes in a jar, Filipino Coffee beans, greeting cards, and tote bags to name just a few.

So here’s how it works. You’ll do your shopping online from November 20 to 29 and lock down all your goodies. Then, you’ll pick up from December 4 to 6 during designated times at 302 Industrial Avenue in Vancouver where a staff member will greet you outside with your order.
When you go to grab your purchases, you’ll be delighted to hear students from the Tabletutors Dj Academy playing a set from a safe distance for your enjoyment. There will also be a toy drive at pick-up, so bring an unwrapped toy donation if you can.
Magkasama’s Christmas Market will go live on November 20 at 8 am at this link. Be sure to mark your calendar and get in on this awesome opportunity while you can.
