2022 Sari-Sari Market, Atlanta GA
A Real Success
CHECK OUT OUR GALLERY!
The Filipino American community here in GA came together, in one space, for the very first Sari-Sari Market, Atlanta Georgia held last October 15,2022. Judging by the smiles, hugs, and congratulations, the event was well received by all participants and attendees of this whole day event. It all began with an idea and conversations with other community leaders that led to a lot of excitement and participation of the members of PACCGA, our families, and friends.
Anyone who has met a Filipino will tell you that we are the friendliest, nicest, and most fun-loving bunch you would ever meet. We also love to eat and feed our friends. Filipinos are also resilient, enterprising, extremely creative, and very attached to our roots. Many of us have immigrated to the US in search of a better economic life and have left families back home in the hope of bringing them over after setting up a life here. The hard work and the struggles usually pay off in the end but not without sacrifice and the pain of missing the connection to our motherland.
The Sari-Sari Market was a way to bring to Georgia a familiar experience of an average day in Philippines where one goes to market to get everyday needs for the family. Sari-Sari stores or variety stores are akin to the 7-11 corner store. We combined that with the market concept, as way to enhance the experience and at the same time, showcase our Filipino American businesses here in GA.
It was a way to spread the joy of experiencing familiar sounds, sights, tastes and smells that remind you of home. This experience would even be made more special by sharing it with our friends and families who have never been to the Philippines. The Sari-Sari Market was indeed a happy and joyous event for all.
Thank you to all who came to support our small businesses and our Filipino American community.
