Soon, Puerto Princesa will be one of the cities in the Philippines with a regular night market, according to Councilor Elgin Damasco.

During the opening ceremony of the Tabuan ig Barakalan at the Ramon V. Mitra Sports Complex, Damasco bared plans for an ordinance that will institutionalize the creation of a regular night market in the city, compared to seasonal ones like Barakalan sa Banwa.

In an interview with Palawan Daily News, Councilor Damasco said that an ordinance would still need to be crafted for it to happen.

“Ginagawa pa kasi natin yung ordinansa, kaliangan kasi ng ordinansa yan bago natin ma-implement ‘yung night market. Pero talagang pinagpupursigehan natin na magawa kaagad ang batas na ‘yan para…ang target natin ay ‘di aabot ng December, maitayo natin ‘yung night market. Sana, sana mapabilis pa ‘yung proseso,” he said.

Damasco also said that the proposed night market will have two tentative locations: The stretch of Rizal Avenue from Burgos and Roxas streets, and the Puerto Princesa Baywalk.
