Souk aal Souk
“Souk aal Souk” farmer’s market aims at promoting organic and healthy food of local farmers and small producers from different Lebanese areas. It intends to build and strengthen linkages between urban residents and rural producers by offering city residents access to healthy traditional food, and direct contact with the producers. Furthermore, it aims at promoting the food heritage to the urban residents.
The market was established in 2013 in collaboration with the Environment and Sustainable Development Unit (ESDU) of the American University of Beirut, and supported by Waterfront City Cares. Training sessions on food safety and food handling, organic farming and good agricultural practices were organized and delivered to the market participants.
The Food Heritage Foundation drives the farmers’ market to academic institutions in order to promote healthy and traditional eating among students. The souk partnered with different schools and universities such as AUB, LAU Beirut, and schools like ACS, IC, Grand Lycée, Lycée Abdel Kader, and many others.
Over Fifteen producers and farmers from across Lebanon regularly participate in Souk aal Souk, offering to the consumers a wide choice of traditional food, pastries, saj, sweets, mouneh products, fresh juices, fruits and vegetables, locally grown plants and flowers, handmade crafts, etc.
