Produce permits or be penalized in Penang


Penang’s seasonal fruit sellers, especially those hawking durian, now need a permit to set up shop.

This permit also comes with a whole string of conditions, like…

● no foreigners are allowed to operate the stall

● no plastics to wrap or display the fruits

● stall owners are responsible for the disposal of rubbish

The temporary license fees are also very minimal at about RM1 per day for every 40 square feet and there’s only a one-off payment for canopy fees.

Hopefully this doesn’t affect durian prices!
