Exploring Doha: Fish Market and Fruits and Vegetable Souq

To get fresh ingredients for our Turkish Dishes blog, off we went to the Fish Market along Salwa Road and since the Fruits and Vegetable Souq is nearby, we explored the market as well. "Souq" in Arabic means market or marketplace.
It is  a great sight to see wheelbarrows full of fish, fruits and vegetables towards the buyer's cars. We didn't need wheelbarrows as we explored the souq as a team of Turknoys.

our explorer team - inside the fish market!
love the classic market wheelbarrows!

Although a bit fish-smelly and the place is packed with lots of consumer wanting to get fresh produce, buying fish, fruits and vegetables are here is a way cheaper than in the supermarket. Not to mention,  higher quality as these produce are really fresh.

The Turknoys enjoyed running and jumping around the fruit and vegetable souq, not so much in the fish market. It was very crowded and floor is understandably very wet.Yes, it is not a good idea to bring kids in these places, but hey, we are the explorers. One very good thing is that , the kids are good way to haggle. We always get freebies from the very kind vendors. All of them just adore kids.

healthy food, healthy kids

With the fish, vegetable and fruits we got today, we are looking forward to a week of healthy meals.

Keep exploring!
