Reasons to visit Al Wakra Central Market in Qatar
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.

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.
