All Souls' Day 2019: Here's A Dangwa Flower Market Price ListBefore you head to Manila, here's a peek into what flowers you can find there.by Lei Dimarucut-Sison .
We Filipinos traditionally visit the tombs of our departed loved ones as often as we can, including special occasions such as their birthdays, and most especially on All Souls’ Day. With only three days remaining before November 2, most everyone is already busy planning their trips to the cemetery, whether here in the city or in the province.
Along with prayers for the repose of their souls, flowers and candles are common offerings to our dearly departed. As it is every year, flower shops are filled to the brim with patrons. One place that is popular among those who want to get the freshest and most affordable flowers in the city is the Dangwa flower market in Sampaloc, Manila, so called because of its proximity to the Dangwa bus station. It’s practically open 24 hours a day all year round, and especially on occasions such as Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, and All Souls’ Day, during which prices are expected to be higher.ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
For All Souls’ Day this year, one of the vendors we spoke to said that there’s minimal to almost no price increase in most of the flowers they sell, because these are strictly being regulated. If you’re planning to go to the Dangwa flower market in the next two days, here’s a price guide you can refer to:
