Saturday September 30, 2017 was a beautiful autumn day to have a farmers’ market in the West Bekaa!
The event organized by the Food Heritage Foundation in collaboration with arcenciel, was hosted by Chateau Kefraya. Around ten producers from the Bekaa region displayed local products including fresh fruits and vegetables, organic food, traditional mouneh (preserves), soap and other local produce.
“Beit el Mouzareh” or the house of the farmer is an initiative by arcenciel – agriculture program to support farmers and producers from the Bekaa region. The souk was founded in 2016 and is held every Sunday during summer at the convent of Tanail.
For the first time, the souk moved to the West Bekaa to include producers from darb el karam – food trail and others from the villages around the trail.
Visitors from Beirut and neighboring villages enjoyed delicious healthy food and wine while supporting local farmers and women.
