This follows directives from the National Capital District for work to commence on the reformation of the Gordon market.
Vendors were told yesterday that the market would not be in use for a maximum of a year until the reconstruction has been completed.
The Unagi Oval, although not in any condition to cater for a temporary market, will have to do so due to its availability.
Vendors were at the market as early as 7am this morning to get their space for their produce.
Some of these vendors, however, will be catered for at the recently-opened Boroko market.
