Before this market was founded, it was originally an animal market. And currently the animal market has been moved to Ambarketawang Gamping. With various considerations of urban growth, it is seen that this animal market is not suitable to be in the middle of a city, so the Yogyakarta city government is encouraged to relocate the traditional market.
The construction of the Klithikan market is a relocation of Klithikan street vendors from Jalan Mangkubumi, Jalan Asem Gede and Alun-alun Kidul. Klithikan Market was inaugurated on November 11, 2007 by the Minister of SMEs and Cooperatives, Mr. Surya Dharma Ali.
Since the relocation of Klithikan’s market appearance has changed drastically. At first, Klithikan traders only spread their wares on the side of the road, unorganized and unclear legal status, and now they can occupy adequate market buildings, supported by adequate facilities and clear legal status.
