Central Market needs facelift Quoting the Solomon Star newspaper – 3 February 2019
“With the over crowdedness currently faced at the Honiara Central Market, market vendors have called on the Honiara City Council (HCC) to consider an expansion to the current facility. “A group of vendors spoken to yesterday say they no longer enjoyed selling their produces at the market venue, as the facility could no longer accommodate the growing number of vendors each days. “The Honiara Central Market is a fish, flower, clothing, fruit and vegetable market, which also sells shell money, and other local crafts such as palm-frond broomsticks, jewellery, coconut oil and hair tonics. “It is also offering the largest fresh produce and fish outlets in Honiara. “Honiara Central Market is a blessing for the people of Solomon Islands. “It was donated by the Japanese more than 20 years ago and the Central Market building would be one of the most valuable aid projects ever. “Thousands and thousands of people have benefited not only from the fruits and vegetables to be purchased but in many other ways.”
