A short trip to lebanon. A journey of some discovery led me to hit the street early in the morning and spend some time with the farmers at Souk El tayeb. The literal translation of Souk el Tayeb means “the good market” – both good in taste and character.
Souk El Tayeb is an initiative that was set up to promote the consumption of local food, and gives the right to local small scale farmers to deliver traditional products directly to the hands of the consumer. Producers from all over lebanon participate in this souk, and provide traditional authentic produce that keeps the heritage of lebanon alive.
