Talipapa - People's Mall

Abe V Rotor

Fruits and veggies vendor

Ukay-ukay
Talipapa
Religious items, Quiapo

Souvenir items

Old helping hand

Rolling fishball cart

Window vending

Baskets full of harvest from many a season's toil;
Manna for everyone best grown on our fertile soil;
And goods fashioned by hand by the midnight oil;
To market, to market, I hear the people bid and call;
And hands - young and old come, rough and small;
Of vendors all over, here in this people's mall. ~
