The weeklong ‘Souq Waqif Exhibition for Honey and Dates,’ featuring over 160 exhibitors from 25 countries, kicked off at Ahmad Square on Sunday. The festival, currently in its fifth edition, is set to run until March 11.

The festival will showcase over 60 kinds of honey and more than five kinds of dates, some of them very rare, said Festival Supervisor Khalid Al Suwaidi.

“We’re sure there’ll be many people coming for the exhibition, especially as we’re showcasing very rare types of dates and honey products. Pricing ranges from very low, medium to high, depending on the products and what you’re looking for,” Al Suwaidi was quoted as saying.

With the Holy month of Ramadan drawing near, Al Suwaidi anticipated a higher flow of people to the festival as dates and honey are two of the customary sweets in breaking the fast.

Among honey products that are being exhibited at the festival are Sidr, Wild Sidr, Manuka, Stingless Bee Honey, Acacia, Meadow, White Honey, Ginger Honey, and Mountain Flower Honey. 

While date products are Halawy, Mazafati, Medjool, Jordan Banks Dates, Milk Chocolate Date Almonds, and Dates with coconut.

Around 24 Qatari honey farms and four date farms will be participating in the event. The festival will be open daily from 3.30pm to 9.30pm.
