Shopping for food - basic words

A new colleague has requested a video about names of foods. I've put together a simple video using a children's picture dictionary. One of these days I'll make a film in a real shop! But in the meantime, here's a selection of commonly purchased fruit, veg, and other food items.

In the news...

Today's BBC Azeri has an article about the Absheron gas field. It has some fairly complex sentences. I have attempted to translate some of the article with an explanation of specific elements of grammar. One verb form that I can't identify is çəkərək. What verb form is this? Help from native speakers on this would be appreciated. The parts in bold are from the original article.
