“Food Market” kicks off from downtown Beirut and hopefully will tour the country


The Daily Star newspaper published in today’s issue a feature on the weekly food market launched last April 30th in Downtown Beirut area which draws a crowd to street food lovers. The Food Market caters to many tastes bringing in all kinds of products and culinary delights from the different Lebanese regions. Some 30 restaurants offer unique dishes or meals that suit the tastes of visitors who flock the market every Thursday evening, said Antony Rahayel, one of the ‘Food Market’ founders. The market initiative runs in collaboration with the farmers’ market in Beirut, better known as ‘Souk el Tayyib’ and the NoGarlicNoOnions foodie blog in addition to the contribution of the Lebanese chef Wael Ladkani. On the selection of foods offered at the stalls, Rahayel boasts that visitors can find in one place a beer coming from Batroon, ice cream coming from Downtown Beirut, hummus from Dbayyeh and shawarma from Metn area. After the successful experience in the capital, Rahayel noted, the market is expanding and has joined the Flashback festival in Brummana held from July 31 to August 2, stressing the purpose of the project which is to revive the various cities and villages in Lebanon through partaking in different festivals across the country.
