Fiji Sun - - SUNBIZ - LAISEANA NASIGA

The first mi­cro mar­ket or­gan­ised by the Fiji Sports Coun­cil yes­ter­day at its carpark in­front of its newly ren­o­vated of­fice was hailed a suc­cess.

The mi­cro-mar­ket brought in bud­ding en­trepreneur­s, mums and dads to dis­play and sell their wares.

De­vel­op­ing mi­cro-mar­kets

Op­er­a­tions man­ager Elenoa Korovulavu­la said at $30 a stall, the coun­cil has made ac­cess to the mi­cro­mar­ket easy for ven­dors.

At $30 per stall, ven­dors will be pro­vided with a tent, ta­ble and two chairs.

She also said the mi­cro mar­ket would also as­sist en­trepreneur­s de­velop their own mi­cro-mar­ket. “Some­thing to get ex­cited about, some­thing to do. “Es­pe­cially mums and dads with spe­cial things, knick and knacks, lovely home cooked sweets and sa­vories, that they want to sell, this is an op­por­tu­nity for them to do so, hope­fully this plat­form will as­sist them in de­vel­op­ing their own mi­cro-mar­kets,” she said.

More than 30 ven­dors have so far con­firmed their book­ings on Satur­day, June 27 from 9am to 6pm.

Park and sell

To ease things for sell­ing, ven­dors also have the op­tion of sell­ing their items from the boot of their car. This was a new con­cept by the coun­cil to ba­si­cally park and sell.

“We are charg­ing $20 per car for this, so you’re like a mo­bile shop in a way.

“Just park and sell ba­si­cally,” said Ms Korovulavu­la. Ms Korovulavu­la said they have al­ready put in place COVID-19 health and safety pro­to­cols for the fa­cil­i­ties that are open.
