Vendors in Port Moresby and near by villages of Central and Gulf now have a proper place to go and sell their vegetables following the opening of the Gordons market.

A massive 30-million Kina has been spent on the refurbishment of the Gordon's market in the National Capital District.

The project is co- funded by the Government of New Zealand and National Capital District Commission as part of the UN Women's Safe City Programme, aims at making markets safe for women and girls.

NCD Governor Powes Parkop and Moresby North- East MP John Kaupa officially opened the state of the art and redeveloped Gordon market this morning.

In his address, Governor Parkop acknowledged all its partners for seeing the essence of providing a proper space, where vendors can sell their local produce.

The two-story market will house 1,500 registered vendors and includes a cafe, play ground, food court , parking lot and CCTV cameras to monitor the daily happenings of the market.

Governor Parkop is appealing to the city residents to take ownership of the new facility which cost millions of kina.

The market will be officially opened to vendors and buyers next Tuesday.
