Souk El Akel

Thursday food market in the Downtown supporting local organic producers

There are very few things the Lebanese value more than their food. What better way to honor our culinary heritage than to dedicate a weekly festival in its honor?

It was about time somebody thought of it. After all, Beirut' s obsession with food is paralleled only with its obsession with politics. With the city fast becoming a gourmet destination in the region, Lebanese food has developed nothing short of a cult following in recent years. Located on Youssef Rami street, behind the Municipality of Beirut, Souk El Akel -aka The Food Market- is a celebration of Lebanon's vibrant culinary world, showcasing Lebanese, Middle Eastern and International cuisine.

From local artisans’ ‘Tabkhat’ to everyday restaurants and cafés for all budgets, all Souk el Akel vendors are hand-picked to bring you the best of the best. Sample signature bites .from a curated selection of nearly 30 food vendors from Souk El Tayeb artisans, world-renowned Lebanese classics to celebrity chefs and pop-ups, and street-inspired dishes from Beirut’s famous restaurants!  

Designed as a public market space, chefs and producers from various parts of Lebanon will serve up an array of quality meals – on the go! By joining the thousands of visitors who have already enjoyed the Souk's offerings, you will be supporting the local community, restaurateurs and nothing short of Beirut’s economy! 

This event is in collaboration with Souk El Tayeb, Beirut's well-known Farmer's Market, NoGarlicNoOnions, an up-and-coming food blog, Chef Wael Lazkani, Master Chef at Asian restaurant Jai and Solidere
