The Al Wakra Central Market offers livestock and fodder, in addition to a variety of traditional items, fruits & vegetables, accessories, and so much more! Many can purchase meat from their livestock market, which is among the largest in the country.

The market, managed by Aswaq, a subsidiary of Hassad Food, spreads over an area of 230,000 square meters and is located only 30 minutes outside Doha and approximately 10 minutes from Hamad Port – open from 6 a.m. until 8 p.m.

At the market, people can select animals from the barns at the facility, which will be sent directly to the slaughterhouse, managed by Widam Food Co.

Besides porters, butchers, and other staff members at the market, veterinarians examine each animal before they are slaughtered. As a result, the meat's safe consumption will be ensured under the guidelines of the Ministry.

The Traditional market offers vegetables, fruits, dried fruits, honey, dates, clothes, accessories, traditional items, homeware, and much more!

Within the traditional market, you can find home decor and antique materials. In addition to this, you will find kitchenware, accessories, and clothing.

Two plant nurseries are located in the Al Wakra Central Market, offering solutions for indoor and outdoor landscaping.

A number of multi-service shops are located in Al Wakra Central Market – vet pharmacies, animal food stores, a chicken center, gents saloon, and more! There is also an Al Meera Wholesale, where you can purchase items in bulk only.

Aswaq also manages other markets located in Umm Salal and Al Sailiya – offering a range of products and services and is open for all. Also worth visiting is the Omani Souq in Al Sailiya Central Market.  

The Al Wakra Central market is as big as Al Sailiya and Umm Salal combined! Visit the market and benefit from all that it offers.
