New farmers’ souks in Jabal Amel, Kfar 3kab

20-7-2020

Recently, there has been a surge in local farmers’ markets in various regions, notably in the Shuf towns of Freidis and Baruk, Ghalbun in Jbeil as well as in Tyre, in an attempt to support local livelihoods. In this respect, the minister of agriculture, Abbas Mortada, inaugurated on Saturday the Jabal Amel market to promote and sell local agricultural produce directly to the consumer at reasonable prices. During the opening of the market projected to be held every Saturday, Mortada criticized the slackness on the part of former governments toward the sector, calling for cooperation to improve and protect food security. Concurrently, the municipality of Kfar 3kab launched ‘Village Market’ (Souk el Dai’aa) to prop farmers, artisans and industrialists. Residents of the Upper Matn town and environs displayed food, seasonal veggies and fruits, traditional mouneh items, in addition to handicrafts at competitive prices. The bazaar takes place at 6 am every Saturday at the Kfar 3kab square. (An Nahar, Al Diyar, July 19, 2020)
