Bye to bargain hunting! Joy Belmonte rids QC Circle of tiangges
Visitors of Quezon City Memorial Circle (QMC) will no longer see any flea markets or tiangges when they visit the park.
Mayor Joy Belmonte recently ordered vendors out of QMC because the flea market’s permit expired on June 30.
The flea market’s organizer complied with Belmonte’s directive and had the park cleared by August 5.
Food stalls beside the QMC covered court has also vacated the park, while the restaurants and food stores surrounding the playground were given until August 18 to leave their areas.
Belmonte has said that she wants to develop QMC into a people-friendly park.
