Subside? No.
Rise the prices? No.

But government owns the land, and can build the clean markets, just some place under the roof, near the old "wet-market" place, and allow to move everybody in. Limited space per capita of course - just to give the good start for those who wants it at the beginning of making business. Place with running water, enough light, cleaned (around) by the city's sanitation workers, and (inside) by the vendors.
That could cease the "non-official" prices paid to the "city guys", would also provide more hygiene, then - better health.

Why not to "subside"?
Because where is a money - there is a corruption. Easier when it is cash, harder when the help is not  restricted (officials can't "select thepeople to help") and not in money.

Other reason is that everybody who wants to move to town or city expects "good money from the start", and this is simpley impossible. If I woud pay extra for every vegetables vendor, why not the meat vendor, newspaper vendor, sanitation worker... welll... why not to everybody who claims the need.

Give Then some opportunities, that can also improve (rationally) the conditions for buyers.
Qui pro Quo. not the "Money for nothing and tickets for free".
