Souk el Tayeb is an open-air weekly farmers market in Lebanon that specializes in organic food products. It is held every Saturday in downtown Beirut at the Beirut Souks, Trablos Street from 9am to 2pm. [1]

The market is organized and run by a non-profit cooperative headquartered at 226, Rue Gouraud in Gemmayzeh. The organic cooperative spans Lebanon's regions, religions and sects.[2] Souk el Tayeb receives funding from European governments and from nongovernmental groups.[2] According to the Los Angeles Times, the Italian government donated $600,000 for food-related projects in Lebanon after the 2006 war.
