Night market concludes

The annual night market organised by the Maldives National Chamber of Commerce and Industry (MNCCI) drew to a close last night.

Newspaper Haveeru reports that some stalls gave away commodities for free while others sold goods at much lower rates than market prices. The market was held at the the tsunami memorial area at the eastern end of Male’ with 450 tables and took place from July 10 to 22.

According to local businesses, each stall made between Rf8,000 (US$500) and Rf15,000 (US$970) a night with kitchen utensils among the most popular items ahead of the upcoming fasting month of Ramadan.
