Update: The Technical Working Group (TWG) assigned for the development of the Baguio public market has said that the proposed modernized market will be a 5-storey building with 2 parking spaces in the basement.


The new market will also be able to house 4,000 vendors that are equitably distributed in four sections; the wet section, the fruit and vegetables section, the dry section and other merchandized section, according to Baguio Public Information website.

The TWD has estimated that the project would cost 6 billion pesos and the development will be undertaken in four phases in a 3-year period.

Funding for the project would come either through a bank loan, a joint venture, turnkey or a partnership with local cooperatives, the website added.

Cordillera - Baguio city residents and market vendors will have a reason to be proud off if the city government will pursue a massive development plan of the public market to become one of the most modernized markets in Southeast Asia. 


According to the official website of Baguio City, a total of P6 Billion is now needed to fund the said development plan. 

The development plan includes modernizing the Magsaysay complex by building a 5 storey main market building with a basement parking area that can accommodate 635 slots.
