As Christmas Bazaars come and go people feel good about getting discounts as they shop, find unique gift items, and simply enjoy the experience of being in a holiday market. Vendors also feel great at being able to reach more markets when the season for gift-giving begins.

Among the many options for Christmas Bazaars coming up this holiday season in the Philippines, GoodNewsPilipinas found some holiday markets really worth supporting for demonstrating the true spirit of giving that gave Christmas its meaning.

In this first of a series of new features on Philippine bazaars and markets, we present 3 Christmas bazaars to watch out for as both buyers and sellers prepare for the holidays:

NOEL BAZAAR to support education, entrepreneurs, and talents

Noel Bazaar tops our list for holiday markets you must check out this season.

Going on for 18 years, this popular annual bazaar is held for the benefit of charitable institutions such as GMA Kapuso Foundation, Bantayog ng mga Bayani Foundation, Philippine Daily Inquirer Foundation, Gifts & Graces Foundation, Noel P. Gozon Memorial Clinic, and the Lingkod Puso Foundation.

Even this early, Noel Bazaar has committed to use proceeds to pursue the construction of GMA Kapuso classrooms in war-torn Marawi in Southern Philippines.

Noel Bazaar also offers entrepreneurs exposure at the highly-attended market by offering free booth and discounted rates through a social media campaign this September.

Featured merchants offer healthy food items, eco-friendly bags, local fashion, Filipino arts and crafts, along with numerous other décor and gift ideas, as well as food and drinks.
