While we wait for the construction of a Modernized Carbon, a new kind of night market opens right at the center of Cebu City. Carbon Market night shopping has plenty of food stalls and market choices that offer you the full Bisdak market experience.
You’ll be able to enjoy the view of the newly opened CCLEX while buying from your favorite “bagsakan” place. The market is definitely a place of bargaining, and any marked price should be taken only as a suggestion.
