MAGKASAMA - TOGETHER
Mabuhay! Welcome to the Magkasama Virtual Christmas Market! It's our favorite time of year and we couldn't think of a better way to embrace the Holiday season than by supporting local and celebrating the amazing Filipino/Canadian businesses throughout the Lower Mainland!
Our concept is simple; you browse through our vendors below and place whatever items you wish to purchase in your 'cart.' Upon checkout, you will be asked to select the date and time you wish to pick up your 'Magaksama Christmas Market Haul' from December 4-6. We will ensure your products are packed with all appropriate safety measures. Upon arrival, you will be greeted with your 'Christmas haul,' ready to go - simple as that!
Look at this market as one centralized platform to procure your favorite products, support local Filipino owned businesses and discover new ones as well! We encourage you to browse through all vendors before checking out. We have carefully curated a diverse range of products that will certainly get you in the Christmas spirit! Have fun shopping and Happy Holidays!!
Additionally, Typhoon Goni has been ravaging the Philippines; leaving hundreds of casualties and thousands of people homeless. This Holiday season, we ask that you consider donating by 'Feeding a Family'. A donation of Only $17 will feed a family of four for 3 days - we have included this option on the checkout page but feel free to donate as much as you like!
*Please note: Our pick up period will be executed with strict COVID protocol - when you arrive we will have have your order ready outside - social distancing will be enforced and masks are mandatory- thank you*
*PLEASE SELECT PICK UP OPTION AT CHECK OUT!!*
Tabletutors DJ Academy Toy Drive
We are also proud to partner with Tabletutors Dj Academy, who are a community of professional Djs, that share their passion of Djing with anyone who loves music! They (and their students) will be playing music during the Magkasama Christmas Market on December 5th (at a safe distance). They will also be kicking off their toy drive at this event! We invite you to drop off a new unwrapped toy donation of any size when you pick up your order. (No plush toys please!)
As an added bonus, everybody's favorite jeepney Shameless Buns will be offering their famous 'Shameless' eats during the pick up period.
*COVID protocols will be strictly enforced*
Magkasama - Together
As we all shift to live the 'new normal' we are focussed on celebrating local Filipino businesses and the driven entrepreneurs that strive to bring flavors from the Philippines in new and exciting ways! Magkasama means 'Together' in Tagalog and this could not be more relevant than right NOW! We truly are all in this together and Magkasama reflects the unwavering dedication and passion we have for our food and our culture. Although we cannot be together in a physical space; we can still support each other. Look at this market as one centralized platform to procure your favorite products and discover new ones as well!
Thank you to everyone who supports this initiative including our Influencer partners, our amazing customers and most importantly, our fearless vendors.
