Let me say this first, I'm living in Cagayan de Oro for almost 40 years and I have seen the Puerto Public Market from the first years again and again. 40 years ago it was already a dirty and filthy market. Today it is a more dity and filthy market ever. The market is depilated and in my opinon a health risk.
But the people, vendors and customers are friendly and jolly as ever. You will see it this video right from the beginning but be aware of images of extrem dirt.
