Cucumbers, zucchinis and eggplants freshly picked from various farms across Qatar were a major draw as the winter sale of local farm produce began at four yards in Qatar on Thursday.
A large number of people turned up at the yards in Al Wakra, Al Khor-Al Thakhira, Al Shamal and Al Shahaniya on the opening day of the sale, which takes place on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, from 7am to 3pm throughout the winter.
