AMBULANT VENDORS in Tacloban City affected by the road and sidewalk clearing operations can get stalls at the new Night Market along Quezon Boulevard and fees for their business permit application have been waived until Aug. 31. In a statement, the local government said the 7 p.m. to midnight market, which had its soft opening last Friday, can accommodate 100 vendors at the marked stall spaces. “We will also be setting up tents through the help of City Tourism and City Engineer’s Office to take care of the night market’s electricity, cleanliness and security needs,” officer-in-charge Market Superintendent Joel Bugho said. “As part of our preparation, we have already set up additional lighting systems in the area for the convenience of the vendors and shoppers,” he added. Half of Quezon Boulevard, fronting the Main Tacloban Public Market, has been allocated for the evening stalls, while the designated parking area for shoppers is at the back of the Macdonald’s restaurant.
