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 supplies for their respective businesses. The Dried fish market is located in the town of Banica, a mere 2 kilometers away from Roxas City.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.
Best time to visit
It's best to visit the Banica Dried Fish Market during the Philippines' summer months (March through May). Make sure to head here early too since the market usually opens at 6 AM and closes at 9 AM.
