Ube, baby, baby! Kapwa Gardens is excited to announce that Yum Yams: A Celebration of All Things Ube is back for its second year as a full-on Ube Crawl with 18+ different vendors selling both ube treats, plus Filipino-inspired art vendors.

What is Ube? Ube is one of those distinct Filipino flavors—slightly nutty with hints of vanilla. We have an amazing lineup of food and retail vendors, ranging from ube cheesecake to pan de sal.
