CEO prepares Perfecto Street
by Jho Arranz / PIO

To accommodate the hundreds of walk-in and interested vendors at the night market, the city government is improving the parking spaces along Perfecto St., which will serve as the extension area.

Despite objections, the Baguio City Market Authority (BCMA) pursued the plan of including Perfecto St. as night market area.

About 160 vendors will be accommodated in the extension area. The space for the stalls will be the same as those occupied by the night market vendors along Harrison Road.

The BCMA will announce the availability of the additional slots for interested night market vendors once the City Engineering Office (CEO) is done measuring the spaces to be leased and with the installation of appropriate lighting fixtures along the extension area.

The city’s plan of transferring the night market activities along the perimeter of Melvin Jones football ground is still under study.

Mayor Mauricio Domogan said once the plan pushes through, Harrison Road will be free from traffic congestion, safer for both vendors and patrons, and will be more attractive to the public.

He asked the CEO and City Buildings and Architecture Office to coordinate and finalize to come up with an estimated budget for the project.

Harrison Road is used as trade area from 9 p.m. to 4 a.m. with around 1,100 individuals selling clothes, shoes, accessories, and streetfood.

The city collects P50 per night from each vendor. The city collects an average of P1.5 million to P2M per month from the night market during the peak season.

Apart from the additional income to be derived by the city government, Domogan said the extension will provide livelihood opportunities to walk-in and interested vendors.
