Tacloban City  Taclobanons and visitors from other towns may soon have a more exciting shopping experience of just anything they need- this time during night time.

This after a dialogue with vendors conducted this morning, August 2, wherein an initial understanding was agreed upon for putting up a Night Market along Tarcela street in front of the Tacloban Public market.

Some of the vendors were hesitant, while some are excited.

The night market opens 7:00 p.m. until 12 midnight daily, wherein the whole Tarcela street will be closed to traffic- which means all shoppers will have to be on foot while going around the night market. It might extend also up to P. Gomez street depending on the situation.

Policemen will provide security to shoppers at the night market which will open very soon.

In today's dialogue with vendors, representatives from the city government pointed out that the city government under the leadership of Mayor Alfred S. Romualdez is just following orders thru a memorandum from Pres. Rodrigo R. Duterte in clearing all roads and sidewalks from any obstructions- emphasizing further that this is a nationwide order of the President.

Various concerns were raised by the vendors operating in the downtown area but were appropriately answered by the representatives from the city government.

Market superintendent Joel Bugho said there will be a lot of concerns from the vendors that may be raised later as they start moving into their new locations, but he said, Mayor Alfred will always be there to hear them and address their concerns.
