Our Story

Vinta Alternative Market started in Siargao Island during the height of the Pandemic in October 2020. Our vision is to bring in a curation of sustainable, ethically-sourced and all natural products for the people living in Siargao during that difficult season, amidst lockdown and travel restrictions. 

We started as a bulk-store of different healthy dry food including premium loose leaf tea and specialty grade coffee beans, where everyone can buy just the amount that they need, reducing the use of plastic packaging on the island.

Thru the support of our local community, we have grown to expand our selection with unique pieces and the best brands we love from sun care, beauty & personal care, to women’s clothing and island essentials that brings a sense of little pleasure to our valued customers.

Vinta was built on the idea to be more than just a shop, but also to have a space to share good moments and give an exceptional shopping experience with our customers, who in turn to be friends sharing the same vibe within the community on the island.
