Palengke Items

   Going to the market is a different experience for all. Lots of people prefer to buy their meats and veggies at the palengke because it’s fresher and sometimes even cheaper than the ones they sell at the supermarket. On the other hand, some people rather shop in the supermarket because of ambient music, helpful customer service, and a wider variety of foods that sometimes can’t be found in a market. But of course, the truly savvy buyer would want the best of both worlds. Why not purchase fresh fruits and rice, free of any spoilage, but without leaving your bed? Why do you have to endure the hardships of loud noises and excessive pollution, if you could select fresh produce from the comforts of your home? Well, BigBenta’s Palengke Items section aims to help you with that! Only getting the best of the best from trusted suppliers, our online palengke stall is filled to the brim with fresh and high quality fruits, veggies, rice, and even cooking gas, all of which can be viewed below. Happy shopping!

   An acronym for Liquefied Petroleum Gas, LPG is born by refining petroleum, which is derived from fossil fuels. First sold in 1912, it is unique from the coal and wood based cooking systems at the time, as it burns relatively cleanly compared to the two. Although its usage has dropping in developed countries due to natural gas pipelines, it is more popular in people in other countries where natural gas pipelines are scarce, such as in the Philippines. In a country where pipelines such as these aren’t in use yet and electric cooking isn’t too popular yet, LPG is definitely the cooking gas to go with! Popular LPG brands in the Philippines are listed below:

Popular Brands: Gasul, Omni Gas, Petron, Luzon Gas, Solane

Sizes: 3.9kg, 6kg, 11kg, 18kg, 19kg, 47kg

   An essential part of more than half of the world’s population, rice is one of the crops that definitely won’t be replaced any time soon. Eaten for thousands of years already, the preparation of rice has greatly changed since then. Nowadays, there are so many ways to prepare rice and make it as its own dish, fried rice, paella, pilaf, and risotto just to name a few. On the other hand, rice is also evolving in a scientific aspect. Being a common crop, rice is being genetically modified by scientists in hope of increasing yield or shelf life, or even simply being modified to contain nutrients to solve deficiency! Indeed the hundreds of types of rice being grown today are living proofs of the popularity of the rice crop.

   But of course, good rice can be hard to find as well. Popular rice types, such as Jasmine rice by the Japanese, basmati rice by the Indians, and even brown rice for an extra healthy meal, can be pricey for most. This is why a lot of people tend to purchase pre-packaged rice, as they can be trusted more.

Types of Rice: Long grain rice, Basmati rice, Chinese black rice, Glutinous Rice, Jasmine Rice, Paella Rice, Par-boiled Rice, Quick Cook Rice, Red Rice, Risotto Rice, Short and Medium Grain Rice, Sushi Rice

Rice-sack sizes: 5kilos, 10kilos, and 50kilos

   Fruits have existed ever since fruit trees existed. Even when man were still nomads, people would supplement their diet with fruits and vegetables, as it contains more vitamins that meat will ever have! Fast forward to today, and fruits are in abundance, which explains why vitamin deficiency is harder to get today! Although fruits vary in abundance and price, each kind of fruit is unique, and no two fruits are the same!

   We in the Philippines blessed to have a climate that is friendly to fruit trees. Though fruits here don’t exactly grow all year round, we have enough days of sunshine to ensure that trees get the Vitamin D they need. From delicious mangos all the way to the exotic strawberry, we have a lot of fruits. Probably explains why virtually all restaurants offer fruit shakes!

   On the other hand, vegetables are arguably easier to grow, as they form the diets of most people. Though they definitely aren’t very delicious straight from the tree (or ground, it depends), they are still important for providing us with fiber and vitamins and minerals (yep, vegans are healthy)

   Luckily in the Philippines, veggies are also in abundance, and are cheap. Unlike in colder countries, we don’t have to worry about preservation. But just like fruits, you might get tricked into buying spoiled or inferior quality veggies, so a good advice are to buy in trusted locations, and to study the fruit and vegetable carefully before placing giving it to the vendor for weigh-in.

   Common Philippine Fruits commonly referred to as Tropical Fruits: Mangos, Rambutan, Lanzones, Atis, Chico, Santol, Durian, Papaya, Pineapple, and others.

   Common Philippine Vegetables: Eggplants, Sitaw, Pechay, Cassava Leaves, Taro Leaves, Tomatoes, Banana Blossoms, Okra, Kamote, Ampalaya, and others.

   Luckily, these essential items can now be ordered online. Gone are the days, when you have to go to the wet market, bear the heat and hardship of carrying your heavy basket of goodies. In this age, technology offers everyone the ease and convenience of shopping – for almost anything – online.
