Flowers in Carbon Market
Have you heard of Carbon Market in Cebu City? If you have no idea what place it is then, you should read this.
Carbon, is a part of Barangay Ermita, Cebu City. It is the main market in the city where you can buy vegetables, fried fish, fruits, fish, meats, flowers, dry goods, clothes, furniture, and kitchen wares at the cheapest prices. By cheap, we mean really cheap.
You can save a lot if you choose to buy something from the public market than in malls. If it's your first time to visit the place, you should let your foot be ready to explore the area.
Let's go for the flowers first, because though Valentine's Day is over, I know of some people who vowed to bring their partners flowers even if it's NOT Valentine's Day. You can definitely find your desired flower but there are so many to choose from, so keep an open mind. Some street vendors do flower bouquet arrangements but if you want to use your creativeness and personalize you can make your own.
So, the landmark of this flower part in Carbon Market is the University of San Jose-Recoletos along 190 Magallanes St. and Escaño St. located at the Freedom Park. There are vendors that sell the flower on the streets for the meantime, especially on Sunday (Market Day). You can ask the vendors about the prices and compare them to the others. The tip around here is to haggle your best price for your item but not all them negotiate especially those renting large stalls (they had bigger paid permit than on streets)
