The Pasay Night Market was inaugurated last Friday to give livelihood to displaced vendors and revive the city’s economy badly hit by the COVID-19 pandemic.
At the Baclaran market’s launch, Pasay Mayor Emi Calixto-Rubiano said, “(We will promote this night market to help vendors and so that it would become a tourist spot in the city. We have some changes here in the night market, and we opened it to revive the economy and allow vendors to work, especially during Christmas.)”
Pasay Public Information Office said the 132-stall night market is open from 5 p.m. until 12 midnight from December 2 to 30.
Rubiano also said they implemented a color-coding scheme, meaning each stall can operate at a specific schedule. They also sought police augmentation to help city marshals implement health protocols at the market.
Stall owners are given two warnings if they violate COVID-19 protocols. If the owner violates a third time, the city will immediately pull out the stall.
