The Katara Cultural Village will soon be adding a fish market to its offerings.
Due to open next week (that’s what one of the guards told me anyway), The Peninsula reports that the market will host a dozen stalls, where a cadre of fishermen will hawk their latest catches.
Says the newspaper:
Located by the Katara Beach, the fish market is part of a big project which will see among others the opening of a restaurant which will serve seafood fresh from the sea and a coffee shop where customers can relax while waiting for the fishes cleaned.
For those located in Dafna & West Bay, the Katara Fish Market will likely prove more convenient than the Central Fish Market that is being renovated in Abu Hamour, or the fishmongers on the corniche near Haloul Cafe.
The question is, what about the smell?
