Cainta LGU gives Korean-inspired kiosks to the town’s sidewalk vendors

Sidewalk vendors are no longer eyesores in Cainta, Rizal as their stalls now have a new look.

Patterned after the food kiosks in Korea, the stalls have been provided by the municipal government to the sidewalk vendors for free.

Municipal Administrator Johnielle Keith Nieto, former mayor of Cainta, said in his post on Facebook that the vendors near the pedestrian overpass in Karangalan Village and Vista Verde areas have been given new kiosks for their wares.

Nieto said these vendors were the second batch of kiosk recipients following the first batch in the Felix High School area.

The former mayor said in his previous social media post that the new kiosks will give the vendors a sense of dignity in their desire to earn a living and at the same time, giving decency to the place where they sell.

He said the municipal government will ensure that the vendors and their kiosks will not be an obstruction for both the pedestrians and motorists.

Administrator Nieto said the design of the kiosk was patterned after the stalls which he and his wife, Mayor Elen Nieto, saw in Korea.
