Zamboanga City Mayor Beng Climaco personally checked Sunday, November 22, the situation at the Sta. Cruz market and Bagsakan Center.
This is the first Sunday for city public markets to operate on Sundays based on an agreement reached during a dialogue led by the mayor with the stall holders Friday, November 20.
The local government said market hours are extended until 6 p.m. “primarily to support economic recovery and…to serve the public.”
Stall holders and operators have expressed gratitude to the mayor for allowing the resumption of Sunday operations as well as extending market hours to 6 p.m. daily, it added.
