TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The management of Taman Mini Indonesia Indah (TMII) cultural park holds a culinary bazaar to celebrate this year's Ramadan. The bazaar is held at the north parking area of the Bentar Temple platform from April 17-May 10, 2021.
The park management’s public relations head Adi Widodo said the bazaar is open annually during the fasting month. “To accommodate people spending their ngabuburit (waiting for breaking the fast) at TMII,” said Adi on Tuesday, April 20.
Last year, the Ramadan culinary bazaar was not opened due to the enforcement of the Large-Scale Social Restriction in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic. “We try to hold it this time, and it turns out that people show high interest,” he added.
On Tuesday afternoon, people were seen flocking the bazaar area. The place got busier as it approached the fast-breaking time. The park management also presented a dangdut music stage to entertain visitors.
A total of 23 outlets selling a variety of culinary delights up to clothing joined the TMII Ramadan culinary bazaar. The traders are micro, small, medium enterprises (MSMEs) from Lubang Buaya Subdistrict.
