In a significant move to protect consumers, support local vendors, and eliminate illegal vendors in the city, Quezon City has awarded a Certificate of Permanent Stall to 365 residents, granting them market stalls in the city-owned public markets, namely Murphy Public Market and Roxas Public Market.

The distribution of these certificates is part of the city's commitment to ensuring a regulated and organized market environment. By providing permanent stalls to deserving individuals, the local government aims to promote a secure and thriving marketplace that benefits both vendors and consumers.

The certificate awarding ceremony was personally led by Mayor Joy Belmonte, Vice Mayor Gian Sotto, District 6 Councilor Vic Bernardo, Business Permits and Licensing Department Head Margarita Santos, Market Development and Administration Department Action Officer Perry Dominguez, District 3 Action Officer Atty. Thomas De Castro, and District 4 Action Officer Al Flores.


Mayor Joy Belmonte emphasized the importance of empowering local entrepreneurs and formalizing their businesses through the provision of permanent stalls. This initiative not only ensures the legitimacy of vendors' operations but also provides them with a stable and legal platform to sell their goods and services.

The Certificate of Permanent Stall Award not only benefits the vendors but also contributes to the overall improvement of public markets in Quezon City. With authorized and regulated stalls, consumers can have confidence in the quality and safety of the products they purchase, while the local economy thrives through the support of small businesses.

By granting these certificates, the Quezon City Government is taking a proactive stance against the proliferation of illegal vendors, which can lead to congestion and potential safety hazards in public areas. The formalization of vendors' operations helps maintain order, cleanliness, and accessibility within the city's public markets.

The involvement of various city officials and departments in the certificate awarding underscores the collective effort to create a conducive business environment in Quezon City. Through collaboration and effective governance, the local government is fostering a culture of entrepreneurship and sustainable economic growth.


As the 365 residents receive their certificates and occupy their designated stalls in Murphy Public Market and Roxas Public Market, the city anticipates a more vibrant and regulated market atmosphere. Quezon City continues to prioritize the welfare of its residents, ensuring their access to safe and reliable marketplaces while upholding the principles of fairness and legality in business operations.
