Cebu City Mayor Tomas Osmena and Councilor Margot Osmena led the ribbon-cutting ceremonies of the Ramos Farmers Market which was launched yesterday.
The couple were joined by Deputy Mayor for Agriculture Cebu City Councilor Alvin Arcilla, ABC President Franklyn Ong, City Market Administrator Winifredo Orcullo, Jr. and City Agriculture Department Head Apple Tribunalo.
The farmers market, located in Barangay Cogon Ramos, is one of the many farmers markets that have sprouted in the city under the encouragement of Mayor Osmena as a way of helping farmers from the mountain barangays of the city.
Tribunalo said fresh fruits and vegetables are more affordable in the farmers market compared to supermarkets and the other public markets by about 5-10 pesos per kilo difference.
The Cebu City Transportation Office has issued a traffic advisory for Mayor Tommy Osmena’s Thanksgiving activity which will be held at the Plaza Sugbo this Sunday afternoon, September 9, 2018.
CCTO’s advisory shows that the area surrounding Cebu City Hall will be closed to vehicles to give way to the participants of the Thanksgiving activity at 2 o’clock in the afternoon.
No vehicles will be allowed to park along Jakosalem and Burgos Streets surrounding the City Hall from 8am until the end of the activity but parking spaces shall be provided at the Maritima area.
