New Saturday Market brings back Escolta’s old charm


With the success of the first edition, 98B will be hosting another Saturday Market @ Escolta on April 27, 2013, 9 am-6 pm at 413 First United Building, Escolta Street, Binondo, Manila. Organized by 98B’s Future Market and the Escolta Commercial Association (ECAI), the Saturday Market features hand-crafted designs and vintage items right at the site of the old Berg Department Store along the old streets of Manila.

How to get there: Take the LRT to Carriedo. Walk to Escolta and go to 413 Escolta St. First United Building after the creek. Landmark: East West Bank & UCPB on the ground floor, in front of JRS Express/PLDT.

98B is a multi-disciplinary art COLLABoratory. It seeks to establish a convergence with artists, designers, curators, writers, musicians, film makers, activists, educators, researchers, cultural workers, performers, architects and students together with the general public. It was established in January 2012 as a response to the need for alternative venues in Manila. Deemed as a site for creative sharing, discussion and collaboration, 98B is a community + network + kitchen + shop. The idea is to have a setting where artists and creative individuals from other disciplines can interact and work together while presenting art in different ways; be it a talk, a bazaar, a publication, a meal or a simple gathering.

98B is a linkage. Through its various programs and activities, partnerships and affiliations are formed. It is a nexus that stimulates communication, promotes diversity and upholds creative engagements. For more information, email
