With less than a week left for Ramadan to begin, the markets have opened up with great offers and discounts on food and household items across Bahrain.

Ramadan is expected to begin on March 23, so for citizens and residents, shopping and night market visits are an essential part of the holy month.

From souvenirs, furniture, and clothes to dry fruits, dates, snacks, and spices, these markets feature a diverse array of products throughout Ramadan.

Several malls, stores, and even online platforms like Talabat are running month-long Ramadan promotions and discounts in various product categories.

Speaking to The Daily Tribune, Rizwan Saddik, an employee at a local store, said: “We have Ramadan deals on the majority of the things, such as sunflower oil, yoghurt, fruits, and ‘buy two get one free’ on frozen meat items.

As Ramadan is this week, it goes without saying that we have a booming business and are happy to offer our customers great discounts. It’s a good sale, and since most customers visit at night, we also keep our store open 24/7 during Ramadan. Many consumers purchase food goods in bulk to save more money overall.”
