THE FAIRCHILD STREET vendors market is open but yet not open.
While some vendors had returned to their stalls yesterday, they said opening again was all but impossible as there was too much cleaning up still to be done.
“We are just cleaning and painting. We can’t open until the health inspector takes a look and sees if we can open. Our water not connected yet either,” said one vendor, who requested anonymity.
Jackie Holder said while she thought the area had improved she was concerned about a row of abandoned stalls which she said were health hazards.
“I would like them moved. If someone didn’t pay rent or was squatting, Government would have them moved so why can’t they get these stalls moved?” she said. (CA)Please read the full story in today’s DAILY NATION, or in the eNATION edition.
