When you say per unit do you mean per Pumpkin ? I'm going to have a look today

Yes. If coming from Arabian Ranches on Emirates Road towards Sharjah you will see the brown fruit and Veg market signs just after you pass Silicon Oasis. Following the signs from Emirates Road you will end up at a traffic light with a petrol station on your left, turn right at these lights. Go through the next set of lights and the co-op will be on your right. Turn in (right) just after you pass the co-op then take a left turn and park in the area in front of the market.

Good luck.

scp I've just come from the Fruit and Veg Market and they still have loads of pumpkins left. There are two vendors with a stack each as tall as me. AED2 per KG. It's the very large, open sided building next to the Co-op. Bought 6 pumpkins for AED60.

You have to walk around inside the big tent. There were several vendors last week and had stacks of pumpkins almost as tall as me and larger than the back of a truck. I can't imagine they are all gone in less than a week.
