When you think about ‘Ukay-ukay’ the first thing you’ll remember is Baguio City as it has been labeled as the Ukay-Ukay Capital due to its popular Night Market. Baguio trip will never be completed Night Market trip and with that comes with an Ukay-ukay haul!

Tarlac City might not be known for its night life and mainstream tourist-y spot but if given a chance to visit the city make sure to bring your eco bags and be prepared for a haul from Ukay-ukay shops!

Just within the town proper you’ll be able to find quite a lot of stalls/stores that offer preloved quality items and if you really want to know where to start then you have to read this list that we’ve compiled for the fashionista!


Market City is located adjacent to the public wet market (also known as the Victory Uptown Market) which house numerous stalls which sells different kind of stuff, but the stalls here are 80% Ukay-ukay stores. This is probably one of the biggest, if not the biggest, Ukay-ukay center that there is in city since this is a two-storey building we are talking about. I can attest to its size and if you are a legit ukay hunter who swipes through every clothes on every racks then free yourself for an entire day to shop! Don’t freak out about tiring yourself because there are food stalls on the ground floor that has different kind of food available, aside from local food stalls there’s also fast food chain within the area.


The ukay-ukay shop location here in City Walk, Tarlac City is not as big the the previous one on our list but it has advantages too. There are only two major Ukay-ukay shops here but despite the number of shop the advantage of this place is that it is surrounded by some major educational institutions within Tarlac City. This is one of the go-to ukay-ukay center for student since  it is surrounded by six schools.

So before Market City and City Walk were erected there are places were Ukay-ukay lived for the longest time and one place is surely known by frequent market buyers. If you are going to buy produce the tradional way (not in the supermarkets and groceries) then the elevated part of the road along Zamora Street is no longer a new sight for you. That elevated part houses few ukay-ukay shop that sells good quality preloved items. If you are looking for shoes then you can check this out first because there’s 2-3 stores that have vast of shoe collection to choose from.
