The market, held in front of the Ministry of Commerce Phuket office on Suthat Rd in Phuket Town, was launched to help vendors deeply affected by the COVID-19 crisis.
The market is to be held four times, with the first edition getting underway on Monday (June 8) and continuing through today (June 12).
The market will be held three more times: July 6-10, Aug 3-7 and Sept 7-11.
Phuket Governor Phakaphong Tavipatana presided over the official opening ceremony at the market on Wednesday (Jun 10).
At the event, Ministry of Commerce Phuket Office Chief Sasiphimon Mongkon said that the market had already generated about B350,000 for market vendors.
In announcing the return of the market, Chief Sasiphimon explained, “We aim to create a place where local people can sell their products at value prices in order to help people cope with their living expenses.
“We expect there will be around 1,000 people coming to the market each day and around 20,000 people visiting the market during the whole campaign, altogether generating about around B3 million in sales,” she said.
