KSAC registering vendors
The Kingston and St Andrew Corporation (KSAC) will be undertaking a vendor registration programme from July 21 to August 31, as it seeks to maintain order in the market districts.
Commercial services manager at the KSAC, Gary Robotham, said the initiative would target persons engaged in vending activities within the formal markets and designated vending areas in Kingston and St Andrew.
"The aim of the vendor registration programme is to ensure that all vendors operating within legal areas are registered to operate legally. The monitoring of the registration process will be done on a weekly basis and we will assess and review the strategies each week, but the ultimate aim is to have all vendors in markets and arcades fully registered," he said.
The vending fee for stalls in markets and arcades is $3,000 annually; $5,000 for off-street annex and $6,000 for approved on-street areas.
Vendors can register at the following locations: Coronation Markets and Annexes, Oxford Mall Arcade and Annexes, Redemption Arcade and Annexes, Constant Spring Arcade, Darling Street Transport Centre, Pearnel Charles Arcade, Pechon Street Transport Centre, Queens Market and Annexes, Cross Roads Market and Annex; 65 Mall Arcade, Papine Market, Half-Way Tree, Constant Spring Market, New Coal Yard Market; Red Rose Fish Market, and Stony Hill Market.
