This was announced by the organizing committee of the event which is set to kick off on December 14th (this Saturday) at the Budaiya Botanical Garden.

Farmers added that they have a lot of vegetables to display like all types of local tomatoes, local broccoli, local beets, local lettuce, local carrots, local cabbage, local onions, and many others.

They pointed out that this market helps farmers to market and diversify their products, in addition to enabling them to develop by bringing seeds and planting them in the same location. In addition, they noted, the availability of some varied agricultural seedlings and setting up sub-festivals devoted to some fruits of the cultivated varieties.
