The word palengke is a local variant of the Spanish word palenque, literally meaning "(wooden) palisade or stockade" and by extension the area enclosed by such a structure for defense, public festivals or some other purpose. It is also used to describe a pathway or cluster of tables set up at some place of gathering such as a theatre, tournament or market.
Today, Palengke is widely used in Philippines to describe a marketplace. Thus, the Filipino Chamber of Commerce of the PNW's Palengke Mall is born. We created this platform extension to support and promote Filipino-American Businesses. We would extend our invitation for Filipino Businesses to join our marketplace.
