One stop shop for goodies you can take home. There longganisa, dried seafood of every variety and pastries. You will have no shortage of choices. If youre going to another place after here be sure to change as the smell sticks to your clothes.

You'll get stinky sure, but if you love eating danggit or dried fish I think that's fine. All sorts of pasalubong is found here -- dried fish/squid, chorizo, dried mango, mango/tamarind balls, etc. Dried seafood are vacuum sealed. Don't forget your haggling skills.

This place offers a wide array products for pasalubong from dried fish, squids, shrimps, manggo, pineapple to otap. You can haggle on the price or scout for better offers. The vendors can offer you free taste of danggit and other products.

Danggit, Dried Pusit, Dried Mangoes, Otap.. Cebu's bests, all in Taboan Public Market. Rather than buying these goodies in malls (bit pricey), Taboan is the right place. You'll just have to endure the strong stench of the dried danggit & pusit and be prepared to...More

Hi! Was not able to take pictures there. It's 400 pesos per kilo of dried mangoes. They can put it in a vacuum bag for you.
