THE opening and blessing of Interim Market stalls at the Unit 2 of Carbon Public Market and the Sto. Niño chapel near the Cebu City Hall were held Friday, January 28,


The newly-finished facilities were built under the Carbon Market Modernization Project between the Cebu City government and Megawide Construction to

accommodate the vendors from the Freedom Park and Warwick Barracks.

To recall, stall owners doing business at the Carbon Public Market were given certificates of award that would allow them to sell their products at the Unit 2

building in Barangay Ermita.

Around 161 certificates of award were given to the stall owners by the city government and Megawide Construction during a formal ceremony July last year.

Irvin Cabales, Cebu City Market administrator, said majority of those who received the certificates were flower vendors from Freedom Park and Warwick


The stalls, which are five meters long, will be used by the vendors free of charge, except for the daily arkabala or excise tax that the city government is going to

collect, Louie Ferrer, Megawide’s Infrastructure Development Division executive director, earlier said. (TPT)
