After a six-month run, Qatar’s three farmer’s markets will close for the summer this afternoon and reopen in November, organizers have said.

The Al Mazrouah Yard near Umm Salal Stadium, the Al Khor/Al Dhakira yard and a newly opened market in Al Wakrah operated Thursdays to Saturdays from 7am to 5pm.

Over the season, they have sold fresh vegetables such as spinach, eggplants, bell peppers and cucumbers from more than 40 of Qatar’s farms.

Some also sold livestock, fish and locally-produced honey as well as dairy products like fresh and canned camel milk.

This is the third year for the farmers’ market program, which allows food producers to connect directly with customers.

With Qatar importing the overwhelming majority of its food, the markets have been lauded for enabling shoppers to get their hands on freshly picked produce that hasn’t spent days inside a shipping container.

Did you check out the markets this season? Thoughts?
