MANAGER of Auki Central Market, James Hagi says business activity is picking up at the market after it resumed normal services recently.

In a recent interview, he said since the lift was made to measures imposed at the market over the past weeks, activities are slowly returning.

Hagi said a good turn-out of farmers was experienced at the market last week and the number will increase within the coming weeks.

“The market can now be seen with products in almost all its sectors within the market,” he said.

Hagi said the market is the only supplier of local food to Auki town and also hosts income to many farmers and producers from parts of the province.

“The resumption of the market will be a relief to vendors and customers especially as they are faced with the situation,” he said.

On that note, Hagi called on vendors and customers that the market resumes normal activity under strict covid-19 conditions and everyone must be aware.

He said the management will continue to monitor covid-19 measures ensuring everyone is doing businesses in the market to comply with the measures.
