I know that quite a few of Marketmanila’s Manila-based readers are in the food business. Over the years, I have gotten tips on where to buy things, offers to test out home made baked goods and lots of questions and answers re: food products in general. I know some readers own small stores, small bakeshops, sell home-made foodstuff, gift items, meats, seafood, etc. So despite the fact that I do not typically accept any advertising, this post is your chance to briefly describe what you are selling and how Marketmanila readers or potential customers can contact you. Please don’t be shy, after all, this is about as ideal a target market as you can find… several thousand foodies or food enthusiasts, mostly aged 20-50 years old, 75% female and 25% male, relatively affluent, articulate, discriminating folks may just want to give your products a try. And with the holidays fast approaching, many are in need of interesting ideas, new sources and tasty options.
So here are some basic rules. If you are in a small food or food related business (small retail operations with say up to three branches or so) that you think readers would like to hear about, leave a brief comment detailing the name of the business, the types of products sold, contact addresses, telephone numbers and email links or addresses: For example:

So, comment away. As always, I reserve the right to delete or edit any inappropriate comments. Please feel free to tell us about your business located anywhere in the Philippines… or even abroad if you think that makes sense. Thanks!
