CEBU CITY, Philippines – Operation of the Bulak Carbon Market, an annual flower show for the Kalag-kalag season, continued despite the closure of cemeteries from October 29 to November 2.

The Cebu City Market Operations (MOD) division in partnership with Cebu2World Development, Inc. of Megawide Corp., the developer that will modernize the carbon market, launched Operation Bulak on the evening of October 29, 2021, as it officially begins today, November 1, 2021.

MOD chief Irvin Cabales said they were considering canceling Operation Bulak due to the cemetery closure, but vendors have called for it to continue.

“Naandam naman gud nya luoy kaayo tong sellers nga niglugsong pa gikan sa lain-laing lugar nya di madayon,” Cabales said.

(It has already been prepared and we pity the sellers, who came from other regions and then the event will not take place.)

With this, the MOD has decided to extend the festival until November 4, 2021, so that those who plan to visit the cemeteries when the cemeteries reopen can enjoy the fresh flowers of the carbon market.

At least 150 vendors from Freedom Park, mountain barangays and other parts of Cebu have converged at the carbon market to sell their products.

The price of arranged flowers ranges from P50 to P1,500 depending on the arrangement and the types of flowers and decorations placed there.

There are also a variety of flowers from local and imported vendors, but MOD’s priority is to give space for local farmers to sell their produce.

One of the vendors, Nanay Anesita, who joined the annual flower show, said she expects low profits again this year due to the cemetery being closed.

However, having the opportunity to sell her products at Carbon herself is an annual tradition that she cannot miss.

“Unta bisan walay abli ang mga sementeryo, mopalit gihapon silag bulak,” said Anesita.

(I hope that even though the cemeteries are closed, they will still buy flowers.)

Cabales hopes the public will continue to patronize carbon market flower growers during these difficult times.

The expansion would also bring more people to Operation Bulak once the cemeteries reopen, and the MOD is calling on the public to help farmers by buying their flowers.
