Farmers Market in Araneta City is arguably the best wet market in Metro Manila for those who want the freshest meat, seafood and other food products for their cooking needs.
The enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) is a directive to arrest the spread of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). Araneta City has rolled out strict measures to ensure a safe environment for both the customers and lessees at Farmers Market.
The Araneta City management has installed “X” floor markings. These are located at the McArthur and Center Avenue entrances. Customers have to stand on to keep a three feet distance from the other customers before entering the market. This procedure will be enforced until the pandemic is over.
In addition, guards at both entrances will be using with face masks and face shields to protect themselves. The security personnel are also provided with temperature scanners to check if a person is sick. Also, spray bottles of alcohol for disinfection.
For the protection of everyone, individuals who have body temperatures of 37.6 °C and above will not be allowed from entering the market. Customers must always wear face masks not only for their safety but for the safety of others.
Inside the market, the management has dispatched roving security personnel with megaphones to remind customers to remain at a safe distance from each other as much as possible while doing their shopping. The proprietors have also given instructions on how they can minimize their physical interaction with customers.
Farmers Market in Araneta City is open daily from 5 AM to 6 PM. The freshest products sourced from the best farms all over the country are still available. To get updates regarding business hours during the ECQ, visit the Araneta City Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/AranetaCity.
