Pasig market now feels like a mall

MANILA, Philippines ? Market goers can now enjoy the convenience and safety of a shopping mall right inside Pasig City?s busiest public market.

With the renovation of the Mutya ng Pasig Market, now also called the Pasig Mega Market, shoppers can choose from more than 3,000 stalls selling wet and dry goods in the 2.1-hectare lot, Mayor Bobby Eusebio said yesterday.

?Gone are the days when going to the ?palengke? (public market) is a labyrinthine quest that would test the temper and survival skills of market goers,? officials said in a statement issued by the city?s public information office.

The stalls in the three-story facility are arranged in clusters just like in supermarkets to make it easier and more convenient for shoppers to find what they need, they added.

The ground floor houses the wet section where one can buy fresh vegetables, fruits, seafood, poultry and meat. On the second floor, shoppers can find ready-to-wear clothes, shoes and bags, accessories and souvenir products.

Finally, bargain hunters can go to the third floor where the ?tiangge? (flea market) is located.

At the Atrium found at the center of the market, tired shoppers can rest their sore feet and eat snacks at the food court.

Some 25 toilets are located at strategic spots around the market, and roving guards provide security to market goers.

Eusebio said he wanted to transform the outdated ?palengke? into a modern market with ?mall-shopping convenience and safety.?
