The Kadiwa ng Pasko markets were launched in 14 locations but it hasn't stopped there. Beyond the first locations, more areas within the city have opened up. You just need to know the schedule so you can plan your trips to avail of vegetables, fruits, sugar, and even rice priced at government prices.
