Ilocos Norte Shopping

The Ilocano culture is alive and well in Ilocos Norte. Because local artisans still practice their art, visitors are provided the rare chance of witnessing the authentic works of our craftsmen. Among the best buys are basketry (Pinili, Badoc), bricks ( Paoay), Mushrooms (Pinili), pottery & metal works (San Nicolas), rattan (Adams, Marcos, Nueva Era & Pagudpud), tin smithing (Badoc), and weaving material (Laoag, Paoay & Sarrat). Ilocos Norte is proud of its garlic (Bacarra, Badoc, Bangui, Burgos & Paoay), sukang iloko (native vinegar) and tobacco (Badoc, Batac, Dingras, Marcos & Paoay). Among its native delicacies are bagnet (chicharon), biscocho (crackers), corniks (corn kernels), empanada (filled pastry), linga (sesame seed), longganiza (sausage) and tupig (sticky rice).

The best bargain can be found from the market vendors, especially during their market days. Come early, though, because the vendors usually go home before lunch.
