Reopening of Sidcor Eton Centris Sunday Market

It was December 6, 2020 when the famed Sidcor Eaton Centris Walk Sunday market bazaar had finally reopens their business to the general public.

This was after more than 8 months of non-operation due to the coronavirus 2019 lockdown. Since the organizers had to observe strict social distancing rules set aside by IATF, Quezon City local government regulations.

Fewer that the pre-covid 2019 stall were able to get stalls within the sunday market. From between 400 to 430 stalls before March 15, 2020 the stalls only numbers about 200 which was just 50% few months ago.

Hand sanitizers, an area to wash and bigger stalls were present at the sunday market.
