Parañaque City Mayor Edwin Olivarez announced the construction of "People's Market" for about 2,000 vendors from Baclaran who were affected by President Rodrigo Duterte’s directive to clear the streets of illegal vendors and structures.

Olivarez said the planned “People’s Market” which will be built using 60 x 300 meters of “cement slab” placed on top of canals along the service road of Roxas Boulevard has already been approved by the Metro Manila Council (MMC).

Aside from this, Olivarez said a loading and unloading zone, overhead pedestrian crossing, and parking lots will also be constructed at the proposed market, which is expected to be in full operation by the end of the year.

Olivarez sought for understanding from business establishments that may be inconvenienced by the planned market.

So far, Olivarez said the local government has been able to locate a temporary place for about 1,000 displaced street vendors where they can now sell their wares.

Olivarez directed officials of Barangay Baclaran to maintain cleanliness in their area as well as keep a close watch on stubborn illegal vendors who insist on plying their wares on the streets.

The displaced vendors expressed their gratitude to Olivarez for giving them another opportunity to sell their wares.
