The ‘Pasar Kitani’ weekend market will resume this Sunday at the parking area of the Ministry of Primary Resources and Tourism (MPRT), Jalan Menteri Besar from 6am to 11am.

The market, which is a programme under Bandarku Ceria will be held every Sunday. Re-opening the market is one of the strategies under the Department of Argiculture and Agrifood (DAA) in support of the MPRT’s efforts to help farmers to market their products and increase their farm yields. Vendors and visitors will need to comply with COVID-19 preventative measures under which open air stalls and markets are permitted to operate during Brunei’s Early Endemic Phase.

This include allowing only registered vendors under the DAA who had completed two doses of vaccine with green and yellow BruHealth colour codes to operate at the market.

Any vendor who is unwell is advised not to attend; vendors should wear a face mask at all times; practice social distancing and personal hygiene and ensure the cleanliness and sanitation of the stalls.

Meanwhile, visitors are required to wear face masks at all times, scan BruHealth code with only those with green and yellow BruHealth codes allowed to enter the market.

Visitors above 18 years old with two doses of vaccines, and partially vaccinated single dose or unvaccinated children are allowed entry, provided they are accompanied by fully vaccinated parents or guardians. Individuals who are not feeling well are advised not to visit the market.

The DAA encourages the public to support local farmers by visiting this weekly event.
