THE $50 million dollar-plus recently opened Siparia market has no sinks installed in the food court area.
And because of this, eight food vendors have not been able to operate their stalls since the facility opened to the public in August.
Attempts by the food vendors to have the problem solved have been futile.
Susan Garcia, one of the vendors, said they have tried to meet with officials from the Siparia Regional Corporation on several occasions to discuss the issue but there was no meeting.
She said they were told they needed to wait till after the local government elections on Monday to have the problem solved.
The sinks to be installed by the corporation are a double sink and a single sink.
Garcia said the eight vendors were very upset that they have not been able to work for almost two months.
Chief executive officer of the Corporation, Gowrie Gene, said two of her assistants have been liaising with the vendors.
She said the corporation was working to have the problem rectified in the shortest possible time but she could not say when the job would be completed.
