Flea Market Case Study1.
It is now a common sight to see the operations of a flea market near the site where the Pantawid Pamilya cash payouts are being made. The case study shows that the operations of the flea market is a manifestation that the extra income received from the Program can perk up local economic activities since most products being sold in the flea market come from the locality or neighboring areas. Even merchants not participating in the flea market, such as pharmacy store, mini-grocery, and school supplies shops, gained from the expenditures of Pantawid beneficiaries.2. The municipality derived extra revenues from flea market traders by imposing market rental fees collected by a designated market collector.
The positive contribution of these extra revenues generated is highly visible in Libon where the successful operation of the Libon Town Center (LTC) is partly supported by the fees generated from the market rentals where various merchants sell their wares particularly during payout days.
