Wednesdays at Malatapay Market are always abuzz with activity. It is a place where livestock growers, local farmers and fishermen converge to sell their fresh produce. It is a whole day fair for the townspeople, shoppers and visitors. Locals from neighboring towns also take part in the market day. Malatapay provides an experience of the traditional Filipino barter system because the locals trade goods within themselves and with vendors who hail from the nearby Apo Island and those who live in the next towns. On other days, Malatapay is an oddly quiet place with not even a hint of activity going on. The market’s exclusive mid week only schedule always makes it something to look forward to for everybody.
