Dangwa Flower Market

Empty pockets again, splurge on one stem or a bunch of roses (Just a disclaimer, I am not complaining). Flowers are most costly on days nearing Valentine’s Day, competing with prices during All Saint’s Day and Mother’s Day.

So where else to find fresh flowers for bargain but at the several flower shops near the Dangwa Bus Terminal located between Dimasalang and Dos Castillas streets in Sampaloc Manila.

Popularly referred to as the Dangwa Flower Market because of its proximity to the bus terminal, floral produce mostly from Davao and Baguio City are unloaded here where stalls upon stalls sell and provide floral arrangement services for their patrons.

Every stall has roses of different shades and sizes. Malaysian mum-varieties stood in plastic pails while delicate violent dendrobium orchids are wrapped in clear plastic.

Although flowers in Dangwa Flower Market are twice or thrice higher from their off-peak price during Valentine’s week, it’s still practical to buy flowers there since most flower shops located in malls as well as those high end floral arrangers get their floral supplies from their favorite Dangwa flower vendor.

  4. you bet, the prices are really steep even sa dangwa but i agree with you, it’s more sensible to get your stash of flowers there since most of the upscale shops get their flowers from there anyway. grabe talaga ang valentine’s day, drives up the prices of most of everything 😀
