Managing city’s night markets

Local government will strengthen management of night markets across the city by learning from popular examples in Taiwan and Hong Kong, the local legislative body said yesterday.

Night markets have long been the target of complaints about smoke, dirt and noise from nearby residents.

But many are popular with tourists keen to taste traditional local food.

The city government will mainly crack down on unlicensed food stalls, usually set up on temporary stalls or tricycles, with more severe punishments.

For other food stalls at popular night markets, the government will set up management committees to ensure food safety and cleanliness. New regulations on night market management will be issued soon.

Meanwhile, the government will also improve its food tracing system to cover kitchens in offices, schools and chain restaurants.
