The Dangwa  market has been around since the mid 1970’s and was extremely popular during the Marcos regime when the market provided flowers to the large florists in town which then decorated the Presidential Palace.

In 1994 the market began operating 24 hours a day and now dealers communicate with the growers telling them what is needed and deliveries are made fresh and fast.

Deliveries start arriving between 8 and 10pm and continue until past midnight so the best time to arrive is between 1 and 3am when the market is buzzing with fresh deliveries and people jockeying to get the perfect arrangement.
