Come next week vendors operating from Cavans Lane, St. Michael will be moving to new facilities at Independence Square, the City.
Officials from the Markets Division, Ministry of Agriculture, Food, Fisheries, Industry and Small Business Development have revealed that the relocation will commence on Monday, January 31.
This decision was taken as a result of the completion of the work at Independence Square by the Barbados Tourism Investment Inc., which had originally provided a number of kiosks for the vendors.??
"Kiosks have been provided at Independence Square to accommodate these vendors to continue to operate with the minimum of dislocation and the taxis will be allowed to return to their former base at Cavans Lane," the official explained. He added that discussions were held among the vendors, their representatives, officials from the Ministry of Agriculture and other stakeholders and all parties have been notified of the pending relocation.??
