The name Good Shepherd is definitely a Baguio staple. The Good Shepherd Convent is one of—if not the most—popular souvenir shops in Baguio which offers food products prepared by Good Shepherd nuns. They’re a bit pricey compared to other brands, but you’ll be guaranteed with high quality and taste like no other.
The Good Shepherd Ube Jam is a crowd favorite among all other pasalubongs, and it’s usually sold-out especially if you head there on a weekend. Their products include strawberry jam, peanut brittle, snow balls, chocolate crinkles, among others. The lines are usually long, so visitors are advised to list down their orders before heading to the counter for faster transactions.
If you’re not planning to hoard boxes worth of products, these goodies are also available in other parts of Baguio. Head to the public market, or any pasalubong shops around the city and you’ll definitely see lots of their products, especially the Good Shepherd Ube Jam, lined up on shelves. The prices are slightly higher compared to when you buy them on the original shop, but it saves you the hassle of going there, especially if you’re in the city center. Beware of imitations, though. Looking for other pasalubong ideas aside from food? You can also head to the Baguio Night Market which is located near the Baguio Plaza.
Located near other tourist spots such as Mines View Park and Wright Park, the place also features The Shepherd’s Gallery where you can catch a breathtaking view of the city from a higher point of view. It’s also a great venue for photo opportunities! Don’t forget to bring your camera.
