The Trellis Bay Market which was hard hit by recent hurricanes and suffered over $100,000 in losses has partially reopened for business and will be hosting its iconic full moon party this weekend.

In an interview with BVI News Online, manager Shamora Molly Penn detailed the damage suffered and noted that renovation work is ongoing to have the facility fully restored in the short term.

“We have two areas; the market area and the bar and grill. The whole area got tremendous damage. Right now we are building a wall. We have started renovating in the market area and they are working on getting it up and running by the end of November. The bar and grill have been operating,” she remarked.

She revealed that a newly built deck lounge, gift shop, laundromat, and office have been listed among the structures destroyed during the hurricanes.
