General Santos’ Wet Market

When I was younger, I loved accompanying our cook to the wet market seeing all the fresh produce and seafood and coming home and watching her cook. Til this very day, I love exploring new markets in the country and abroad, however big or small they may be. My passion for food is re-ignited and my creative juices begin to flow as I see all the ย wonderful produce and fish of the bountiful sea. This was the first time I visited the Gen San market and I was so amazed at how fresh the seafood was. The Veggies, amazing!

Guso or seaweed. 30 pesos a kilo? That's so cheap!
Salay-salay glistening. This immediately caught my eye. So fresh. Wanted to buy and make paksiw na isda! yuuum! Look at those eyes! Uberly Fresh

Sea Bass... Another huge one!

Beautiful blue stripes ran across the top of this fish. Look at how fresh the eyes are. crystal clear!
I find these fish too pretty to eat. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

After a wonderful afternoon in the market accompanied my my darling niece/cousin Kyla, we picked up my son from the house and went to the mall to walk around and grab a little snack.

My niece, Kyla. Thanks for coming with me ๐Ÿ˜€
enjoying their noodles and siomai ๐Ÿ˜€ Same smile, don't ya think? ๐Ÿ˜‰

I can’t wait to head back to the market and take photos of all the wonderful veggies, root crops and fruits that caught my eye while I was there. I’ll be back! ๐Ÿ˜€
