It's another #marketFriday by @dswigle and I'm happy to tour you around one of Cebu's Public Market at Minglanilla.
Minglanilla is one of the municipalities in the province of Cebu, mainly in the southern part. It's quite distant from the heart of the city but won't take long to travel. By public bus/jeep, it is just 30 mins travel time depending on the traffic.
Since I stayed at my cousin's place last Friday, she tag me along to buy groceries in preparation for her son's graduation.
This is actually my first time visiting markets in the southern part of Cebu. My whole life has familiarized myself mostly with the nearby towns from my province at Danao but not really in the South. Knowing that this is going to be a great experience, I tag along quickly even if it was 7 in the morning.
Upon entering their parking area, you will be greeted with this wall called "The Market Place, Minglanilla". What a nice name!
They actually have wide space for parking and enough for some stalls selling plants and fish outside the main market.
Our first stop was at Prince Warehouse. It's a very known super market in Philippines where you can buy almost everything you need at a reasonable price. If you don't preferred to go to the public market, this would be your other option with good quality and affordable products.
Terre, a friend of my cousin will be making a coffee jelly as dessert so we bought ingredients for it, they are also going to have samgyup at home for dinner so we bought Ham, longganisa, hotdogs and some processed foods fast to cook.
From Prince Warehouse, we proceeded to the main public market of Minglanilla. Upon entering the main entrance of their market, you would start seeing fruit stands and vegetables on the opposite side.
We first bought 1 kilo of these letus cost 120 pesos. Then we proceed inside to look and buy eggs, sotanghon noodles, and pork.
On our way there, these stalls were selling different kinds of goods. There are shoes, sandals, clothes, bags, and umbrellas. All random things that you might need, are organized side by side.
Til we found eggs near the wet foods section. It comes at different prices depending on the size. My aunt who came with us took the small one for 6.50 pesos, 10 pieces of it. In the opposite store, she bought the sotanghon noodle.
Next, we went to their Pork station and bought 1/4 kilo only because we only need it to mix with our vegetable dish as "Subak".
Then, we went outside and buy onions and garlic needed.
On our way out, my aunt's husband bought 2 fighting fish for 50 pesos each from the outside stalls near the ones selling plants.
That was one of the great experiences I had. I bet nothing is different except only the space is not too crowded but maybe because it was still early in the morning when we went by. It's just the same as other public markets however, Minglanilla has the biggest one so far next to Carbon public market that I visited.
Thank you for coming! Til our next market-ventures ✨

Hi! I saw your post on ocd's curation blog.
I grew up in Minglanilla. I've never been back since leaving the town and my gosh, so much has changed!
Hi @crimsonowl-art ! Really you're from Minglanilla? Small world! This was my first time visiting the market here though, I can't really tell some changes but maybe there is. You should pay a visit someday! ☺️
What a great market! Glad you got out and checked it while you were there. It was quite nice, not crowded and really clean. As markets go, I think it is great!
Look at those fighting fish! They are gorgeous! I had one on my desk for a while. Thank you for being a part of #MarketFriday! It has been fun tagging along with you!Thank you for participating in #MarketFriday! I appreciate the time and effort that goes into putting a post together for the challenge. It is with great pleasure that I read through and realize how much we have all tried to include things in our world that may be unique to the area. I have learned so much about the different cultures of the world, especially the small things that go unnoticed except by those looking for them. Life is interesting, wherever you are, whatever you are doing. I hope the week has found you healthy and happy, as we all look to prosper in our way of life.

It's good that the market is not that crowded unlike here where it is almost always crowded by that time of the day. I haven't heard of Prince Warehouse. Maybe it's more popular there in the south? I know more about Julie's Bakery though which is what I noticed in one of your photos :D
I know this is very late respond 😂 but yeah, sorry Prince Warehouse is only famous around Cebu, not the entire country. I suppose to put Cebu not ph 😆 but thanks for noticing @leeart. I think Market is always crowded no matter what time is. Only in the Philippines? 😄
It's okay. Nothing to be sorry about. That happens to me too. I always reply late too lol! Right? That only shows how robust our economy is :D
