MetadataShow full item record
Market vendors are also being hit hard by the closure of Boracay Island to tourists. Fish, fruit and vegetable vendors at Talipapa Bukid, the main market on the island, have complained of a drastic drop in sales since April 26, the start of the six-month closure and rehabilitation of the island. Residents and hotels, resorts and restaurants in Boracay get their daily food supply from Talipapa Bukid. A “bangus” (milkfish) vendor said his daily sales dropped from the usual P10,000 to P4,000 on Saturday and P3,500 on Sunday.
