The market opened its doors on the 10th of December 2022.

The minister also visited the children’s corner at the market and honoured two of the participating children for maintaining cleanliness.

“The huge turnout over the course of 8 weeks stands as a testament to the popularity enjoyed by the market, which has become a major platform for Bahraini products,” the minister said.

The ministry, he said, will spare no efforts in developing initiatives and programmes that will enhance the agricultural sector.

This year, the market had the participation of 32 farmers, four agricultural companies, five nurseries, four apiaries, four specialists in dates and 20 productive families.
