The La Trinidad Trading Post is the drop off point of freshly harvested fruits and vegetables grown in La Trinidad, Benguet. An early afternoon drive to the Trading Post can take an hour from Baguio City. As you are surrounded with maybe tons of different types of crops in a roofed area nearly the size of a football field, the interaction among traders murmur against the collective sound of sweeping footsteps, rustling sacks, cart wheels and warm chatter with faint laughter.
You will pass through Binalonan, Pangasinan as you descend back to Manila before reaching TPLEX. On the side of the highway, locals vend fish sauce or patis that is properly prepared by fermenting fish using "banga" without using a drop of salt to create this delectable condiment incomparable to those manufactured commercially. This town does not only sell patis originating from neighboring towns in Pangasinan but also bagoong and vinegar.

Bottles and jugs of different types of vinegar are found along the highway in Binalonan, Pangasinan.
