Bahrain's HRH Prime Minister Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa has opened the redesigned central commercial complex in Muharraq, named Muharraq Central Market, that features retail spaces for vegetables, meat, and fish, plus a Lulu Hypermarket store, part of the Indian leader Yusuff Ali M A-run, Abu Dhabi-headquartered Lulu Group.

The three-storey market, at 28,000sqm, is four times the size of the old market, and features a 180-car underground parking lot; 61 multipurpose commercial outlets; and sections for produce sales.

While attending the opening ceremony of the redesigned market, HRH the Premier expressed his admiration for the new market, stating that its design and architectural style combined Muharraq’s authenticity in a more current timeline.

He added that Muharraq Central Market’s revamp was part of the Bahraini government’s interest in the development and modernisation of traditional, central, and popular markets to revitalise commercial movement in the kingdom, Bahrain's state news agency, BNA, reported.

Government-backed real estate developer Edamah is developing the Sa'ada mixed-use waterfront destination in Muharraq, the main city on Bahrain’s second-largest island and situated to the east of Manama, to modernise Muharraq's traditional souq and its surrounding area.
