From the night of 15 April, the seasonal vegetable markets (agricultural yards) will start their operations for the holy month of Ramadan. These vegetable markets are located in Al Sheehaniya, Al Mazrouha, Al Wakrah, Al Khor-Al Thakira and Al Shamal and will be open from 7 pm to 11 pm throughout Ramadan on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, according to The Peninsula Qatar.

These markets will offer produce that includes tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchinis, leafy vegetables, egg plants, pumpkins, cabbage, cauliflower, lettuce, mushrooms and onions. Many new local vegetables have been added to the vegetable markets which include potatoes, white onions and Al Qara Al Asli. These markets attract many people and, this year, 20% growth rate is expected as compared to last year.

The General Supervisor of Vegetable Markets at the Ministry of Municipality and Environment (MME), Abdurrahman Al Sulaiti, told The Peninsula Qatar that the management of the markets were taking preventive measures to curb the spread of COVID-19. Strict measures have been put in place with visitors required to show their EHTERAZ green status, wear face masks and maintain social distancing while in the markets.

MME's Agricultural Affairs Department is providing farmers with boxes for marketing their vegetables, and giving them stalls at the markets free of cost, so they are able to sell directly to the customers without having a middleman, so they can get a good return for their investments and hard work.
