Souk El-Tayyib reopens in the heart of Mar Mkhael


Today, Souk el Tayyib inaugurated its new home at Mar Mkhael after a forced interruption following the August 4th Port of Beirut explosion where its main base in the neighborhood was drastically damaged, An Nahar reported. The founder of the market, Kamal Mzawak, disclosed that Souk el Tayyib will relocate to the heart of Mar Mkhael and will bring together, under one roof, the farmers’ market, Tawlet restaurant, Dekenet grocery shop. In addition to the newly introduced “Matbakh el Kell” or Community Kitchen committed to producing hundreds of free meals to needy families daily. Mzawak told An Nahar that since the start of the October 17 uprising, there was a moment where he thought of giving up and leaving the country, and this feeling, he said, was intensified after the 4th of August devastating blast. However, Mzawak went on to say, the dream was revived and we decided to carry on and rise from the dead, stressing the return will be even more powerful and resilient. He pointed out that the determination and will of the whole team consisting of scores of motivated individuals helped to complete the reconstruction works of the new souk in less than 2 months, whereas it was projected to take around 6 months.
