CHENNAI: The city corporation’s ‘Mobile Markets’ initiative is set to turn scrap dealers into vegetable vendors soon. Under this initiative, begun in association with the Tamil Nadu Vanigar Sangankalin Peramaippu, 5,000 tricycles and 2,000 small vans will bring essential vegetables near your homes to prevent crowding at markets and grocery stores, said a release on Wednesday.

The vendors will be provided with masks and other safety gears, and also be given ID cards. Vegetables will be procured from Koyambedu market, added the release. “Those dealing with metal and newspaper scrap have had to shut down their businesses. Now, they can use their tricycles to sell vegetables,” said AM Vikramaraja, president of Tamil Nadu Vanigar Sangankalin Peramaippu to TNIE.
