Cordillera - Manila Mayor Isko Moreno Domagoso assured vegetable farmers and traders that they can continue selling their produce at Manila markets. 
In a meeting with Benguet governor Melchor Diclas together with Benguet Provincial Officials today, Mayor Isko assured them that the public markets in Manila will continue to accommodate vegetables and flowers coming from Benguet. 

Moreno told the Benguet officials that they should not worry and clarified that only on the Recto (Tondo side) is not permitted to display vegetables on Friday (January 17) evening because of the preparation for the celebration of the feast of the Sto. Niño on 17-19 January.

However, the rest of "perpendicular roads ay pwede... tuloy yun.. baka naman nagkaroon kayo ng misconception... tuloy yun" Moreno explained.

Moreno also said that vegetable vendors can resume the usual selling of vegetables on the 18th and 19th because they no longer use it.

"Yung Recto (Tondo side) pwede nang malatagan... kasi di na namin gagamiten," Moreno said.
Benguet officials earlier set a meeting with Mayor Isko to air  the concerns of Benguet farmers and traders about their fear that they will get affected with the planned closure of Divisoria for the upcoming feast of the Sto. Niño.

Mayor Isko assured the officials that the sale of vegetables will continue, although there are some little adjustments that must be supported for the meantime.
