Fresh fruits, vegetables, fish and meat—everything under one roof and literally a cool shopping experience will soon welcome customers at Doha's largest central market. Located at Al Sailiya, the market has undertaken from a strategic development perspective in line with rapid demographic changes in the country and is strategically planned to cater to the current and future population expansion.
“The Al Sailiya Central Market was expected to open in the first quarter of this year, but owing to some expansion works and special procedures, the opening was delayed. But, it will open for business after two months maximum,” an official source at the Ministry of Municipality and Environment was quoted as saying to the Peninsula Qatar.
The market will serve areas like Al Rayyan, Abu Hamour and Al Sailiya and will offer everything from fish, poultry, fruits, and vegetables to an abattoir for camels, cows, and sheep.
The Central Market is built on a total area of 12,000 square metres, and includes three buildings, each one consisting of two floors. The main building accommodates different shops for fruits, vegetables, fish, and others. The abattoir for camels, cows, and sheep is in the third building.
Demand for fresh vegetables and fruits is continuously rising in Qatar. To satisfy this growing demand, the Al Sailiya Central Market will offer a variety of fresh produce from Qatar and around the world at reasonable prices.
There will also be a fish market to cater to the needs of the Doha residents. The facilities and services at the fish market are designed according to international standards of health and food safety regulations.
The market will have an abattoir equipped with all modern specifications to meet health and environmental standards. It will be better than the two existing slaughterhouses in Al Rayyan. People have long been waiting for such a central market because the current two abattoirs are unable to satisfy the demands of customers, especially on occasions like Ramadan and Eid.
