We were introduced by local friends and it is indeed worth visiting. Although we didn’t buy any big items, we bought some fruits and ate them on the spot. We couldn’t make seafood if we bought it, but seafood is really cheap
To learn more about the daily life of the locals in the Philippines, this market is a great place to go. There are many tropical fruits in the Philippines, there are many in the market, and their mangoes are particularly sweet, and the price is cheaper than domestic ones.
This is a living market for locals, where you can buy a lot of vegetables and fruits.
At Malatapay Market, there are stalls on both sides of the road. There is a market every Wednesday morning, which is quite lively. The locals greet you warmly and recommend local handicrafts, which I personally think are more memorable and valuable.
Not only must there be beautiful scenery during the trip, but it is also part of the trip to go deep into the lives of the locals and experience the local culture. The Malatapay market is similar to the domestic market. According to our bed and breakfast landlord, it has a history of many years. There used to be many kinds of handicrafts, local delicacies, fresh seafood and fruits, but in the past two years it has really been lonely and has entered the prosperity of the year. After shopping for more than an hour, I bought some fruits and seafood (big shrimp, coffee crab and big squid) and went back to borrow the landlord’s kitchen to make the only meal I cooked in Duma. In addition, I bought a few small items and returned home as souvenirs.
