Para ‘di kumpulan! Navotas to implement odd-even scheme for market hours


The city government of Navotas has started implementing a number coding scheme for market hours to avoid congestion of buyers and ensure social distancing.

The scheme’s implementation on March 30 coincides with the launch of the mobile market called “Kadiwa on Wheels.”

Holders of home quarantine passes ending in 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9 may go to the market at 5 a.m. to 11 a.m. Those with passes ending in 2, 4, 6, 8, and 0 may do so at 1 p.m. to 6 p.m.

The Department of Agriculture (DA) will send three “Kadiwa on Wheels” trucks that would sell fresh produce, and poultry and fish products from agricultural provinces.

Two trucks will be stationed at 7:30 a.m. at M. Naval St., Brgy. Bangkulasi and at Estrella St., Brgy. Navotas East. Another one will rove Brgys. San Jose, San Roque, Daanghari and Tangos North and South.

“The Kadiwa on Wheels will benefit Navoteños, especially those living in communities far from the city markets. They will also help our farmers who could not sell their produce due to the coronavirus lockdown in Luzon,” Mayor Toby Tiangco said.
