These traders are known to display their wares and foodstuffs on the floor and improvised structures due to the unavailability of market Pavilion.

The project which is being funded through the Assembly's Internally Generated fund (IGF) when completed will accommodate hundreds of traders who trade under scorching sun, pavement and on the roadside particularly Mondays and Fridays which is the official market days for the people.
