Wholesale Market

Previously, Abu Hamour Central Market, one of Qatar’s major markets, was housed in the Wholesale Market Area in Abu Hamour. The wholesale market was situated in what is now Souq Waqif in the Al Jasrah neighborhood of Doha. It was determined that the wholesale market would be moved to Abu Hamour and stay within Doha’s authority, establishing the new western limit of Greater Doha as Doha’s urban growth proceeded unabatedly during the latter 20th century. The Abu Hamour Central Market, which was still open, had fresh produce and fruit markets, cattle markets, and markets for decorative plants. All of the wholesale businesses at Abu Hamour Wholesale Market were closed at the beginning of 2017, and the majority of them were moved to Umm Salal Central Market in Umm Salal Ali. The animal market was moved to Abu Samra in southern Qatar, while the fruit and vegetable market was relocated to Al Sailiya.

Alcohol is accessible at authorized hotel restaurants and bars, but it is illegal to consume it or be intoxicated in public. Alcohol is available to immigrants in Qatar through a permission system so they can consume it at home.

The Baluchis were originally from Oman, Iran, and Pakistan, but they moved to Qatar starting in the 1950s when Qatar began to profit from its oil extraction. The Baluchi population was first evacuated to a housing estate in Fereej Abdel Aziz in the 1950s, then to Nuaija, and eventually to Abu Hamour. Thousands of Baluchis are presently residing in the camp, some of whom have positions in the Qatari government and military but do not hold Qatari citizenship.
