Mawaleh Central Vegetables and Fruits Market in Muscat reopens

Muscat Municipality has reopened the Mawaleh Central Vegetables and Fruits Market in Seeb.

The market was shut down for a week from April 23 as part of precautionary measures to stop the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) in Oman.

Since reopening, a number of preventative procedures have been put into place.

If you want to shop at the market, you’ll need to wear both a protective face mask and gloves. New age restrictions mean that only those aged between 12 and 60 will be allowed to enter.

Cars will not be allowed to enter the market, and instead you will be given a trolley to transport your food to your car.

Local products will be sold in a separate hall to fruit and vegetables coming from abroad, and the market will not be open from Saturday to Thursday between noon and 8pm.

Fridays will be used to clean and disinfect the market.

If you don’t feel like visiting the market in person, don’t forget a new website has just launched where you can buy these products online

You can browse from the sellers you know and love or just shop by product.
