By mid-October, Phase 1 of the Fairchild Street Market Village will be completed, and close to 50 food and beverage vendors who were displaced by the closure of two markets in The City will have a new space to ply their trade.
During a tour of the Bridgetown facility yesterday morning at the same time the Throne Speech was being delivered by Governor General Dame Sandra Mason, acting director of the Urban Development Commission (UDC), Sonia King, estimated that the first phase would be completed by late September to the middle of next month.
“Phase 1 is designed to facilitate 48 food and beverage stalls, and those persons who were displaced from the previous Fairchild Street Market and the Probyn Street Market will be given allocations through the Markets Division to operate food and beverage stalls.
“We expect that this phase will allow us to have those persons who are currently on the Fairchild Street Market as you know it now to come into the food vending area,” King said. (TG)
