Pre-monsoon showers are already here. Soon we will have onset of monsoon. Shopkeepers are well stocked with raincoats, umbrellas and seat covers. But there is no sale. The Covid19-related lockdown has had an adverse impact on the sale of these items.

Goa 365 surveyed the Panaji market and spoke to many shopkeepers to elicit their views on the sale of these items. 

Meanwhile, Mayor of Panaji Uday Madkaikar said that now that the monsoon is almost there, all vendors will be shifted back into the market.

Margao market vendors see a brisk sale of plastic sheets and other items.

Meanwhile ,Ponda vegetable market has opened for busines but vendors say there are no customers. The pandemic -related lockdown has affected the market tremendously.
