CEBU CITY – The Cebu City Government and the Cebu2World Development Inc. (C2W) launched on May 22 the Sunday Night Market on ML Quezon Boulevard, one of the areas being modernized in the Carbon Public Market that aims to provide the Carbon community a space to display Cebu’s local products and cuisine for locals and tourists to enjoy.
The weekly Carbon Sunday Market opens from 4:00-10:00 p.m. and it features a lively food street; a colorful array of general merchandise, souvenirs, fruits and trinkets; a charming display of flowers and greens for plantitos and plantitas; and even services like massage and tarot card reading.
LAMBO Carbon headed by Pastor Zosimo Potot, expressed their gratitude for this recent development. “We are glad this happened and that we are the first to witness its contribution to the Carbon community,” he said.
LAMBO Carbon is a multi-sectoral people’s organization that aims to improve livelihood, sustain welfare, and unite the members of the Carbon community.
“We owe it to these children in the Carbon community. Soon, they will grow up to see a much better Carbon. Five, 10, 15 years down the line, I wish for these children to see a different Carbon and eventually operate this project themselves,” C2W operations director Lydwena Eco said in a welcome message.
Carbon Market is also holding a “Sugbo Sugba” barbecue strip at the viaduct area from 4:00-10:00 p.m. every Friday and Saturday.
