One of the things I enjoy doing is taking a browse through the Bohol Fish Market, here in Tagbilaran. These sort of places are often crowded, hectic, a little stinky from the fish but for some reason I find them interesting. It’s also the best place to get vegetables, much cheaper than the mall. Often you can get the veggies already pre-cut and ready for chop suey or stir-fry. And super cheap too.
You can get some pretty good deals on shrimp, fish, oysters and even crab and eel if you desire. Cheaper than the supermarket, just be sure to haggle the first price. Okra, cabbage, carrots, sprouts, chilis, apples, pineapple, coconut.. so much to choose from! And many of the vendors have veggies pre-cut, ready to just stir-fry into a tasty meal. Add some shrimp.. mmm! The marketplace here closes around 5pm, going in the morning is best time since it’s the cooler part of the day.
So without further ado.. here’s the short video I shot on my first trip to the marketplace here in ‘Tag’. Enjoy!..
