Visiting the Seafood Capital of the Philippines would be incomplete without bringing home some of its delicacies, one being dried seafood. At Banica Dried Fish Market, numerous stalls selling dried fish occupy an entire street, where wholesalers from Antique, Aklan, and Manila routinely buy supply for their respective businesses.
If Cebu City has Taboan Market where delicious danggit is known to be available, the rough equivalent in Panay Island would be Banica Dried Fish Market, the loading bay of all kinds of dried fish such as uga, daing, dried pusit (squid), dilis (anchovies), bulaw-bulaw, alamang, and tabagak coming from Romblon, Masbate, Dumolog, Roxas City, and Northern parts of Iloilo are sold at cheap prices. Because of the high supply, the prices of goods here are lower than the usual market price at malls, making it a fun tourist destination for souvenir buying.
The Dried fish market is located in the town of Banica, a mere 2 kilometers away from Roxas City.
