The new central market at Al Sailiya has officially opened its doors to consumers, producers and traders in Qatar.

Boasting advancing facilities, the new central market spans over an area of 78,000 square meters. It is divided into a number of different air-conditioned sections, catering to the fruit and vegetable trade.

The market comprises 102 shops in the retail section, 50 shops in the wholesale market section coupled with an 8000-square meter auction hall.

The auction hall will feature imported products for sale and will be a key attraction for fruit and vegetable traders in the country.

In addition to this, the central market also consists of nine cold storage areas covering an area of 2,600 square meters. These areas will be particularly helpful to properly store vegetables and fruits in bulk.

Other than this the market features an exclusive area comprising 52 shops for traditional goods, Mohamed Ghanim Al Kubisi, general manager Aswaq, told Gulf Times.

Hassad Food subsidiary, Aswaq, is managing the new central market under the supervision and guidance of the Ministry of Commerce and Industry (MoCI).
