Located in the mall’s Fiesta Market
, the flower section of Market! Market!
is the place to go for fresh blooms for late loved ones laying in Manila American Cemetery
and other nearby memorial parks. Although slightly pricier than the rest of the markets listed, this place still offers cheaper blooms compared to the other flower shops in the area. Starting at PhP1,000, one can take home a basket of custom-made flower arrangement containing carnations, stargazers, sunflowers, and other types of flowers. Standing arrangements are also sold for people with more budget.
How to Get There: Ride a bus in the BGC Bus Terminal near MRT Ayala Station’s north exit and get off at Market! Market!.
Ultimately, it does not matter whether one’s floral offering to his or her late loved ones is big, small, pricey, or inexpensive. This All Saints’ Day, one should remember that the greatest respect he or she can give to the deceased is a solemn celebration and remembrance of the good things that the latter has contributed to the world.
