The Agora Food Market
Where: Terra, 28th Street, Bonifacio Global City
When: Today! October 16, 4:30 p.m. to 10 p.m.

Live entertainment will keep you happy as you wolf down items from A Thousand Treats, D' Famous Imus Longganisa, Panini Shack, Mac and Jar, Kaboom Burgers, and more. Don't worry if you can't catch this one. They're hosting a third Agora Market on October 30.
