As the Ministry of Agriculture and Food Security moves to reopen its market at Fairchild Street, The City, it is also seeking to rename the facility located in the heart of the Greater Bridgetown area.
The Ministry, cognisant of the significant role that markets have played in the lives of Barbadians, is inviting the public to participate in its search for an appropriate name for the remodeled Fairchild Street Market which has been in operation since 1958.
The current re-development project is being carried out by the Urban Development Commission in conjunction with the Ministry.
When completed, it will comprise a variety of shops for the sale of food, fresh meat, fruit and vegetables, clothing, craft and repair services, among others.
Ideas for names should take into consideration Government’s thrust towards the redevelopment of the Greater Bridgetown area, and may come from all vendors working within the market, tradesmen, butchers, historians, and the public, in general. Persons submitting suggestions are encouraged to indicate the reason they have chosen the particular name for the market.
The submissions titled: Search For New Name for Fairchild Street Market should be sent via email to the email@example.com , no later than March 31, 2021.
For further information on the search for a new name for the Fairchild Street Market, interested persons may call the Office of the Manager of Markets at telephone number 535-5133 or 535-5134.
