PALENGKE OPEN NOVEMBER 14 - december 30
Filipino-themed POP-UP SHOP in Downtown Seattle
Across the street from Pike Place Market, a pop-up shop called Palengke (pah-leng-kay, Tagalog for “Market”) is opening from November 14 to December 30, featuring goods from Hood Famous Bakeshop, pop-up restaurant Food & Sh*t, and vinyl decal and design studio Make Look Good. Artwork and crafts by Filipino artists and Filipino-themed vintage items will also be for sale.
Palengke will be located on the mezzanine level inside Alchemy Goods on 1528 1st Avenue, and will be open every day to the public Monday-Friday 11am-7pm, Saturday 10am-8pm and Sundays 10am-6pm. It will be closed on Thanksgiving and Christmas.
“The palengke in the Philippines is like a year-round collaborative pop-up shop featuring many different goods from many different vendors,” says Geo Quibuyen of Food & Sh*t and Hood Famous Bakeshop. “We’re excited to see many local Filipinos’ unique products under one roof.”
Items for sale include baked goods and merchandise from Hood Famous Bakeshop, including its popular line of tropical-flavored cheesecakes as well as clothing and mugs. Food & Sh*t will debut bottled sauces and pickles only previously available on it’s past pop-up restaurant menus. Make Look Good will produce vinyl decal and screenprinted artwork. Artists whose work will be on sale include James Lawrence Ardena, Elaine Villasper, Fernando Argosino, Prometheus Brown, Christine Quibuyen, Derek Dizon and Rico Abadesco.
Collaborators Chera Amlag & Geo Quibuyen (Hood Famous Bakeshop/Food & Sh*t) and Janelle Quibuyen & Sincere Born (Make Look Good) have crafted Palengke in a homelike aesthetic, with visitors welcome to browse and shop or chill and hang out.
An interesting backstory to the pop-up’s location: the unit previously housed Manila Imports, a Philippine goods store which was established in 1986 and closed in 2014.
Special events including meet-and-greets with artists and sales will be announced via Palengke’s website and social media accounts in the upcoming weeks.
