Mangaluru, April 08, 2020: Finally, the fruits and vegetable merchants at the Central Market in Mangaluru have shifted to the APMC Yard at Baikampady as per the instructions of the Mangaluru City Corporation. The merchants here have since long shown little interest in shifting to Baikampady as it is quite far off compared to the Central Market which is in the heart of the city.
It is also a fact that the Central Market is in a chaotic condition lacking several facilities. However, members of the general public are unlikely to travel all the way to Baikampady to procure fruits and vegetables, particularly in case of purchase of small quantity of products.
The Mangaluru City Corporation intends to demolish the present building and construct a full-fledged Central Market complex.
