Vendors tired of market mess

About 20 vendors at the Marhill Street/Palmetto Street market in the City are fed up with what they say is constant mismanagement there.
Things came to a head yesterday when they were forced to wait outside for more than four hours after officials were unable to locate the keys to open the market.
One vendor, Cora Beckles, said this was not the first time they had found themselves locked out.
“This has been happening too long; not the first, second, third or fourth time this happening and there are perishable goods in there to spoil. This is how I make my living, it is not good enough,” she said.
Vendors reported the market was supposed to have been opened since 7 a.m and some of them were present before that time. When a WEEKEND NATION team visited around 11 a.m. the shutters were still closed.
