Fresh, Dried Fish Market
I had a great time today in the Fresh and Dried Fish Section of the General Santos City Public Market.
Since my visit was not announced, I was able to mix with the crowd and haggled for a lower price for the Philippine Salmon caught in Saranggani Bay from P130 to P125 per kilo.
I willingly stepped aside in the narrow alleys in between the stalls as burly men carrying boxes full of fish passed.
It took sometime before some market goers recognized me and when that happened.the prices of dried fish, ginamos and Tuna panga and belly went down further.
That is what they call as fringe benefits of an agriculture secretary personally doing the marketing.
I guess I have to go to the market more often.
