Night Market reels off Aug 15 – Oct 31

The whole stretch of Rizal Street (fronting the CHO and the Land Bank of the Philippines) will be the place to go from 6pm to 12 midnight starting Aug 15 to Oct 31, as the City Government officially opens the Night Market Monday.

Mayor John Dalipe led the ceremonial ribbon-cutting event together with City Health Officer Dr Dulce Miravite, City Administrator Mario Yanga, Acting City Police Director PCol Alex Lorenzo and Task Force Zamboanga Commander Col Randolph Rojas, signaling the start of the Night Market, a prelude to this year’s Zamboanga Hermosa Festival 2022.

Over a hundred stalls and food trucks are laid out offering variety of products for everyone’s delight.

Mayor Dalipe invites the public to enjoy the nightly offering as the City reopens economy and tourism after a 2-year hiatus due to the pandemic. He reminds people however, to continue practicing health protocols as the Covid-19 threat remains.

With the opening of the Night Market Monday, Aug 15, the whole stretch of Rizal Street will be inaccessible to both public and private vehicles starting at 6pm, as concessionaires assemble their stalls and lay their products for the 6-hour operation until 12 midnight.

For those interested to avail of slots, please contact the Business Permits and Licensing Office (BPLO). (Sheila Covarrubias)
