Superb variety and quality and reasonable value for money if you're prepared to haggle. Cost of cleaning is extra plus a tip to one of the green suited assistants who are very helpful. Helps to be familiar with the local types of fish before going there.

The wholesale market is one among the busiest markets of Qatar. The place is the best option for fish meat and vegetables. Friday morning roam around the market would he a great plan to buy your stocks for week

I visit the fruit & veg market (kilo bazaar not wholesale market) every week. I enjoy browsing & supporting the local economy. Produce varies & is seasonal, as is to be expected, & sellers will often offer you a taste before you buy, e.g. a grape, or piece of fruit. Some real gems are available, such as local Doha red...

Now its better to go to big supermarkets like Carrefour/ FFC/ Lulu/ Al Meera etc to buy any vegetables or fruits which are cheaper than wholesale market.. And... More

The vegetable and Fish Market is adjacent to Wholesale Market, Doha- Qatar. It was great experience to buy fresh fish from there with variety of options. There is a separated section for cleaning the fish with some charges per kilo. Better to visit early in the morning.

You dont have to get the fish from there. You can get better deals from local malls which is cheaper and cleaner. The area is extremly smelly and crowded. On thursdays it gets worse. You can get less crowded fish market direct from fishermen on the corniche near Haloul Cafe just opposite the under construction mesuem.

It is a nice place if you want to buy seafood like fish, brawns, crabs and others. Many tourists do visit this place with their kids and cameras to see different types of fishes and document those moments.

Just another Vegetable Market, and fairly small at that. Not worth the taxi ride out there, you'd see more at the Outdoor Market in Birmingham if you're from the UK, and it's nowhere near as good as some of the great markets of this world, such as Victoria Market in Melbourne. I'd skip it, I really would. Do something better... More
