A farmer’s market in Ghalbun, Jbeil

13-7-2020

A new farmer’s market was opened at “Beit Baydar” garden in Ghalboun, Byblos Caza, in cooperation with “Byout Ghalboun” and under the auspices of the minister of agriculture to sell the produce of the town and neighboring villages directly to the consumer. On the occasion, the pastor of the Diocese of Byblos, Michel Aoun, said the event encourages agriculture and return to the roots. Similarly, the director general of the ministry, Louis Lahoud, who represented minister Mortada, hoped this initiative be streamlined in all areas across Lebanon, as it contributes to attaining food security. Lahoud underlined the importance of direct trading of good quality produce between farmers and consumers which reduces the cost on the Lebanese citizen. He finally announced that the agriculture ministry is open to all ideas, pointing to a strategy it developed to prop farmers’ markets and sell production. (Al Diyar, July 13, 2020)
