NAKHON RATCHASIMA: Talad Suranaree farm produce market in Muang district will reopen on Saturday, a month after it was declared the centre of a major Covid-19 virus cluster and ordered closed.
Phit Sonthi, legal adviser to Talad Suranaree Co, said on Friday the provincial governor had issued an order allowing people to return to the wholesale market place on Oct 11.
The market would be reopened on Saturday and vendors could trade as normal, Mr Phit said.
