Tai Po Lam Tsuen Fong Ma Po New Year Fair stalls to be auctioned on December 9

     The Food and Environmental Hygiene Department (FEHD) announced today (November 26) that a public auction for stalls at the 2016 New Year Fair at Fong Ma Po, Lam Tsuen, Tai Po, will be held on December 9 (Wednesday).

     A spokesman for the FEHD said the annual fair will be held for 15 days from February 8 to February 22. The opening prices for the 22 dry goods stalls and six wet goods stalls are $1,210 and $1,200 respectively.

     The auction will begin at 9.30am at Tai Po Community Centre, 2 Heung Sze Wui Street, Tai Po. Dry goods stalls will be auctioned first, followed by wet goods stalls.

     Bidders must be at least 18 years old and ordinarily resident in Hong Kong.

     Anyone can bid for more than one stall. After successfully bidding for a stall, the bidder must immediately pay the bid price and register in his or her own name as the licensee of the stall. The bidder is also required to sign on the spot an express warranty and a licence agreement with the FEHD, or will forfeit the rights to operate the stall.

     The spokesman said that successful bidders should comply with all the stipulations and provisions as set out in the licence agreement including not to assign, sublet, transfer or otherwise part with any of the benefits or obligations of the licence agreement. Otherwise, the department is entitled to terminate the agreement and the licensee shall immediately vacate the stall and the licence fee will not be refunded.

     For the conservation of the Wish-Making Trees, stall operators will not be allowed to sell placards tied with any heavy object (including fruit). The licence agreements of those who fail to comply with the requirement will be terminated.

     The fair site will be made available three days in advance for the setting up of stalls from February 5 to 7, 2016. However, no business shall be conducted on these three days.

     Stall licensees should not mutilate, destroy, damage or abandon any unsold commodities at or in the vicinity of their stalls. They shall completely remove the stall structure and all paraphernalia, together with all refuse, debris and unsold commodities (whether damaged or otherwise) from the licensed area before 6pm on February 22, 2016.

     For more information about the auction, please call the FEHD's Tai Po District Environmental Hygiene Office at 3183 9162 or 2657 1137.
