City fresh market vendors to relocate | Thaiger

PHUKET CITY: Vendors at the fresh market on Ranong Rd, in the heart of Phuket City, will relocate to a temporary market set up for them on Wirat Hongyok Rd from June 17.

The temporary market, opposite Suan Luang Park, has been set up by Phuket City Municipality to minimize inconvenience for shoppers while the municipality builds new market buildings at Ranong Rd, one of the oldest market sites in Phuket. The Downtown Market, built on private land nearby and popular with afternoon shoppers, will be unaffected by the move.

Phuket City Mayor Somjai Suwannasuppana said that the new market has 475 stalls – enough for every vendor from the Ranong Rd market to relocate, free.

The new market comprises a total area of 15,470 square meters, including: 27 one-story shophouses offering a total of 864sqm; 4,695sqm set aside for goods stalls; 9,816sqm dedicated to traffic and parking, and 96 sqm set aside for restrooms

Construction started November last year, with a budget of 14.27 million baht.

“The temporary market will be convenient for people; it is very comfortable, clean and has enough area for parking,” K. Somjai said.

The public is invited to join the opening merit-making ceremony for the temporary market on June 17, when food offerings will be given to Buddhist monks from 5:30 am.
