Qatar vendors hope to recoup losses as Wholesale market reopens

Qatar’s Wholesale market, a major provider of the country’s produce needs, has reopened today after a massive fire ripped through a line of nearby grocery stores Sunday morning.

It took hours for the blaze to be brought under control, and firemen could be seen dousing the site with water as late as last night.

After inspecting the areas affected by the fire, government officials ordered vendors to discard some 10 tons of local and international produce yesterday, causing markets to shut down temporarily.

According to the Peninsula, the disposal of the produce is expected to affect supplies of fruits and vegetables around the country.
