True experimental design focused on the post-test state and purposive sampling technique were used by the researchers. Data were tabulated and interpreted using one-way ANOVA test. The researchers collected samples of meat from the breast part of the chicken bought in three different wet markets along Dasmariñas City, Cavite. The meat samples, omitting the skin, were subjected to plate count using MacConkey Agar plates to detect the presence of gram-negative bacteria. The results of the study showed the absence of bacterial growth in all samples and have concluded that chicken meat obtained from the three local markets within Dasmariñas, Cavite are safe for consumption.
