The Pasalubong Center is a one-stop-shop for proudly Davao-made quality products such as handicrafts, processed food, fashion accessories, souvenir and gift items, home decors, indigenous costumes and native accessories, fruits and flowers, etc., at very affordable rates using locally or internationally sourced materials as well as indigenous and recyclable materials. It is conveniently located along Palma Gil Street in downtown Davao City beside the People’s Park.

Patterned after the Bacolod City's Association of Negros Producers facility, the Pasalubong Center was established by the Davao City government through the initiative of Mayor Sara Duterte whose primary objective is to create more opportunities for exposure to Davao City-based entrepreneurs and manufacturers in the production and marketing of Davao-made quality and unique products to a wider market of foreign and domestic tourists and local consumers. This project is supported by the Department of Tourism (DOT), Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), as well as the tourism sector and various private organizations.

The two-storey Center is divided into sections of fruits, flowers, processed foods, and housewares. It also has an allotted space for quality products made by women groups from the Davao City Jail. These women are often assisted by the local government for the marketing of their products such as mats and printed mugs, etc. The second floor houses fast food restaurants that serve authentic Davao food and delicacies. The Pasalubong Center Davao is open daily for business from 9AM to 6PM.
