Every weekend, the AANI Outdoor Market in ARCA South in Taguig, where the former FTI Complex used to be, draws aspiring chefs and gardening enthusiasts alike. Run by the Agri-Aqua Network International (AANI), the AANI Outdoor Market brings small farmers and vendors into a sprawling space to showcase their goods.
This transforms part of the Ayala Land estate into a cornucopia brimming with organic fruits and vegetables, fresh seafood, and free-range chickens and eggs sourced from the country’s different regions.
The AANI outdoor market stands out among other weekend haunts with its exceptional and extensive selection. Exclusive farm-fresh finds at the AANI market include wild honey from Laguna and Palawan, potted herbs, flowering orchids, as well as organic vermicompost fertilizer. At the wet section, one can find mud crabs from Roxas City, tawilis from Taal, tuna from Mindanao, as well as Norwegian pink salmon.
For gardening enthusiasts, there is an entire section of the market devoted exclusively to flowers and ornamental plants, such as orchids, anthuriums, ground covers, and more.
