Doha residents hunt for pumpkins, which don’t come cheap
As Halloween rolls around, the hunt for pumpkins resumes – and once again, the prices are frightful.
On popular social networking site Qatar Living, shopper ellietot queries:
Does anyone know of anywhere that sells pumpkins – without having to take out a second mortgage??!!!
I know it is a bit of a long shot as I presume they would all be imported – I have seen them in LuLu’s ranging from about 300QAR for a smallish one to well over a 1000QAR for a big one – call me tight but I can’t justify spending quite that much on one!
Spotted any orange gourds around town that won’t break the bank? Please do tell!
