Night market to continue operations in Baguio

BAGUIO CITY: Authorized night market vendors would still be allowed by the city government to ply their trade at Harrison Road despite an earlier directive from the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) for them to vacate the area since it is “beyond the commerce of man” being a public thoroughfare. “Status quo muna tayo sa night market,” City Administrator Bonifacio de la Peña declared to the relief of a jampacked crowd in last week’s general assembly and public consultation on the night market at the PFVR gymnasium here. He disclosed that Mayor Benjamin Magalong would personally ask DPWH Secretary Mark Villar to allow about 1,044 vendors continue using a portion of Harrison Road for the night market, while their planned transfer to the Jose Abad Santos Drive at Burnham Park is being finalized.
