Southwest of Manama in Hamad Town stands a marketplace, Souq Waqif. The first row of merchants are fruit and vegetable sellers. Behind them are bicycle parts and clothing, and the furthest back row are birds and rabbits.
You really can’t get more authentic than this, although if your needs are a bit more than this mini-souq can offer, there is a large supermarket across the street.
