Fresh farm produce on offer as five winter markets open

Doha: With 150 local farms offering fresh locally-grown vegetables at competitive prices, the winter markets opened today.

The winter vegetable markets which helped to market over 16,000 tonnes of local vegetables during the last season are located in Al Sheehaniya, Al Mazrouha, Al Wakrah, Al Khor Al Zakhira and Al Shamal. 

 

The markets will run for the new season on weekends — Thursday to Saturday from 7am to 4pm.

The markets offer various types of vegetables including cucumber, tomato, zucchini, eggplant, different types of leafy vegetables, pumpkin, and various fruits. Dates and honey from local farms will also be available at the markets.

The Agricultural Affairs Department of the Ministry has readied the markets enabling local farmers to offer their produce while adhering to the prescribed preventive and precautionary measures to curb the spread of COVID-19. Health status on Ehteraz app will be checked mandatorily at the entry points to the markets. 

The Agricultural Affairs Department has provided farmers with boxes for marketing vegetables, and stalls at the markets free of cost, enabling them to sell directly to the customers without middlemen to get good return for their investments and hard work.
