A. Overview

Bambu Kuning Market (translated as Yellow Bamboo Market) is the largest traditional market in Bandar Lampung. The market is located in the center city of Bandar Lampung and consists of three floors. The first floor is occupied by the merchant stalls in which recorded about 270 stalls can be found offering a variety of daily needs, including typical unique crafts of Bandar Lampung.

Meanwhile, the second floor is occupied by hundreds of street vendors who sell various products, such as fruits, vegetables, clothes, bags, and others. The last floor is specially occupied by food vendors, which are deliberately placed on the third floor because it imitates the spatial concept of modern shopping centers in general.

Previously, those street vendors held their stalls in front of the shops to the parking lot of the market, some even up to the edge of the highway that often caused traffic jams. Therefore, since 2007 the local government of Bandar Lampung arranged the street vendors gradually to restore the function of parking space back to its original function as well as to avoid traffic jams.

The local government’s plan was not running optimally because the number of stands provided on the second floor was fewer than the number of street vendors. As a result, hundreds of street vendors who did not get their stand on the second floor returned to their previous location in front of the shops of the market. However, when the Mayor of Bandar Lampung held by Edy Sutrisno (2005-2010), the street vendors got their permission to sell in front of the shops up to the present.
