Blumentritt market is one of the largest street markets in Metro Manila that caters to the needs of many Filipinos.
The usual sight you can find in this market are the vendors that obstruct vehicles and add foot traffic, and of course, tons of garbages that are not disposed of properly.
But recently, many were surprised upon seeing how this public market has transformed, the sidewalks, the street vendors and even the trash on the sides of the street are now gone.
In a recent Facebook post, a woman named Abigail Perez Forbes shared photos of the clean ‘Blumentritt’ street that caught the attention of the netizens
She wrote this caption in her post, “AMAZING BLUMENTRITT! Sana po everyday! #mmda #salamatpo.”
In the photos, it can be seen that a group of men in orange uniform helped in cleaning the roads, while the MMDA officers were also present to help in the cleanup drive and to put order back in the market area.
Meanwhile, many netizens were impressed with this new sight of ‘Blumentritt’ market as they rarely see this place clean and not crowded by the merchandise, buyers, and vendors.
Here are some of their comments:
“Wow! Amazing God bless you always Mayor Isko Moreno.”
“May kalsada pala dyan.. Hahaha! Lumaki at nagka-isip na ko na naglalakad pauwi kasi hirap dumaan ang trapik sa lugar na yan. Lolz.. Good job!”
“Sana lang po hindi lang sa umpisa yan Mayor Isko. Para sulit nman po ang pagboto namin sa inyo. Sana magtuloy-tuloy ang kagandahan at kalinisan ng Maynila..God bless po Mayor.”
