The Promotion of Organic and Local Healthy Products Through Farmers’ Markets and Souk Aal Souk Projects:
"Souk aal Souk" is a Farmers' Market for local and healthy products which aims at promoting organic and healthy food of local farmers and small producers from different Lebanese areas; it also intends to build linkages between urban residents and rural producers by offering the city customers the access to healthy traditional food and direct contact with the producers themselves. It is managed by a unit of trained locals from cooperatives, non-governmental organizations, and producers.
