Barangay Puerto in Cagayan de Oro City had one of the most run-down public markets in the city for four decades. After a long time, it was finally demolished and a new modern market is under construction.
Currently, the temporary public market is held around the construction site on the old street and on side streets. So far, nothing has changed and it is to be hoped that this image will also disappear after the new market is completed.
Traders, vendors and customers are friendly and nice people despite everything. I filmed this disastrous market and its lovely people a few years ago and wanted to get a picture of changes once again.
Good, at least something is happening.
