An archipelagic province of the Philippines located in the region of Mimaropa, Palawan is the largest province in the country in terms of total area of jurisdiction. Palawan is home to 232 endemic species, one of the highest densities of the unique species in the world. 

The province of Palawan is consistently featured in several “Best in the World” international lists, so it’s clear that the province’s economy relies heavily on the island’s tourism–it’s also safe to say that the pandemic which enforced a travel ban impacted the island, and not in a good way. 

Palawan Local Market was established in 2020 with one initiative in mind: to help the local tourism workers of Palawan amidst this pandemic. They offer local products and local produce on their website, which are all available for ordering and delivering–both to Palawan and Metro Manila. 

Palawan Local Market guarantees only the freshest produce and local products that are, yes, you guessed it, made from locally sourced ingredients. Are you getting the sense of true community yet? Purchasing from Palawan Local Market equates to supporting the local tourism workers in Palawan, and there’s nothing better than knowing you’re helping out locally.

But of course, PLM doesn’t stop there. 

What’s one skill that more than a handful of people attempted to learn throughout the quarantine? Any guesses? 


This coming Sunday, Palawan Local Market is set to launch its official cooking show, Kain Tayo Palaweño, with a brand new episode to come out every week. 

Learn how to make the freshest local dishes from the comfort of the kitchens in your own homes.
