The Bula spirit is evi­dent in all municipal markets across the country for Fiji day cel­ebrations.

Vendors at the Namaka market made quite a state­ment during this years as they went all out in paint­ing the market blue.

Market vendor, Angie Prasad who always takes the lead by example at the Namaka Market was once again filled with enthusi­asm as the Fiji Day fever brightened the faces of vendors and their stalls.

Ms Prasad who is a bub­bling face of the market said, every year she makes sure that such a theme is portrayed at her stall.

“Traditionally and cultur­ally, it is a norm for me and my brother and sisters at the market to celebrate this day with much pride and dignity,” she said.

Another vendor Kava Ai­sea said, “We are one and we should all embrace and uphold this day.”

Former Namaka Vendors Association president Ali­pate Bilavucu said it is a great day to share with all the Fijians.

“We have to celebrate this day as it is a sign of all Fi­jians working together for the greater good for our country,” he said.

Chair of special admin­istration for Nadi and Si­gatoka, Lawrence Kumar commended the different sections that make up the market at Namaka and Nadi as well.

He also recognised their service to the township and for keeping Fijians healthy with the produce they sell, a contributing factor to­wards the fight of non-com­municable diseases.

Mr Kumar added that ven­dors continue to contribute immensely to the economy of the nation.
