National Museum of Qatar (NMoQ) is taking the community back to the roots of traditional Arabian courtyards by welcoming visitors to this exciting new outdoor artisan market - Baraha Souq that opened on November 22.
Baraha Souq is a vibrant artisan market that takes place every other weekend. The Souq is operated by IN-Q Enterprises, the commercial arm of Qatar Museums, in partnership with Torba Markets, founders of the successful Torba Farmers’ Market in Education City.
The market has been carefully curated to showcase and support local makers and food producers and provide a welcoming stage for cultural engagement. Initially, the market is open every second Friday and Saturday, increasing in frequency in the coming months. It will be open from 2pm to 7pm on Fridays and from 9am to 7pm on Saturdays.
Vendors are also excited of having the market located right in the centre of NMoQ, which has already proved a major crowd puller with 132,000 visitors the first month of its opening.
There's plenty to discover about Qatar’s traditions and customs with a range of activities that offer fun, immersive experiences. Visitors can browse and buy locally designed and created art pieces, fashion and accessories, jewellery, wellness products, homeware, speciality coffee and food, including local date products.
