10 Awesome Finds You Can’t Miss At The Harvest To Goodness Weekend Market In McKinley Hill

Venice Grand Canal Mall

August 1, 2020

In case you missed stocking up on fresh produce and other essentials over the weekend, you still have a chance to shop for everything you need at the McKinley Hill leg of the “Harvest to Goodness Weekend Market” at Venice Grand Canal from July 31 to August 2.

The project is an initiative of the Department of Agriculture (DA), in partnership with Megaworld Lifestyle Malls and non-profit group RestoPH. The project is aimed at providing a venue for farmers, fisherfolk and Filipino-owned restaurants to showcase and market their products while giving the mall-going public access to a wide range of fresh fruits, vegetables, seafood, meat products, and other food choices in a much safer shopping environment.

Aside from shopping at the venue yourself, you also have the luxury of having your purchased goods delivered right to your doorstep via personal shopping service app MyKuya and pay cashless using PayMaya.

What’s more, you don’t have to physically go to the Harvest to Goodness Weekend Market to get the items you want. Over the weekend, Megaworld Lifestyle Malls posted the contact details of participating farmers on their official Facebook page, Viber communities, and website. Shoppers can get in touch directly with the farmers and pre-order products, and then claim their goodies via a curbside pickup station at Venice Grand Canal. Cashless personal deliveries for food purchases from participating restaurants can also be made via LalaFood and Mr. Speedy.
