bring back home local delicacies , danggit, pusit etc. this is the place. delicious dried fish. many stalls to choice from but almost the same prices. don't bother roaming around to find cheaper price unless your looking for specific goods.

Hi! Was not able to take pictures there. It's 400 pesos per kilo of dried mangoes. They can put it in a vacuum bag for you.
