29th Negros Trade Fair at the Glorietta Activity Center

29th Negros Trade Fair

Whenever I hear the name Bacolod or Negros, one thing always comes to mind… Great food. Being married to a Dreyfus who hails originally from Bago City (and eventually transferred to Bacolod), I get to enjoy the best of what Negros has to offer. My father-in-law’s sisters would send us my favorite lumpia, mango tarts and biscocho every so often.

But since the 29th Negros Trade Fair is happening today until September 28 at the Glorietta Activity Center, my favorite ilonggo delights are temporarily just within reach!

The 29th Negros Trade Fair kicked-off yesterday with notable personalities (Ilonggos and non-Ilonggos) gracing the event.

The 29th Negros Trade Fair Launch

The opening production number of the 29th Negros Trade Fair was like a “patikim” of the Masskara Festival which is happening this October.

If you love hopia, drop by Margie’s booth for some Hopia Ahos or hopia garlic. This is my favorite!

Apart from all these, the 29th Negros Trade Fair also features an assortment of beautiful handicrafts. I even spotted Domesticity!

Domesticity products are very stylish, adding color and life to your home. In fact, when you purchase an item from Domesticity, a portion of the sale goes to Gawad Kalinga. You can check out their beautiful items on Instagram (@mydomesticityph).

Visit the Negros Silk booth for some beautiful shawls.

While everyone was having fun and chit-chatting with other 29th Negros Trade Fair guests, a Negrense-inspired hors d’oeuvres by Margarita Fores of Cibo Di M were passed around.

This Piaya with Foie Gras and caramelized onion was the star of the night, in my opinion!

Even the noodles with chorizo is a winner!

Chug it down with this very refreshing Camote Iced Tea with Muscovado (another popular product that comes from the Negros region).

Of course, what Ilonggo fair would be complete without Inasal Nga Manok? A Negrense festivity without the hometown staple would totally be amiss.
