Earlier in the year, GreenProphet visited the organic farms of Wadi Fuqin, a Palestinian village located south of Jerusalem on the border of the West Bank. If you haven’t had a chance to go to the farm, you can see the vegetables in a farmer’s market this Friday in Jerusalem. Most of the small plots are farmed by families; this 73-year-old (above) is planting onions.
The market will be in Jerusalem’s Marakiya restaurant, in the center of town at 4 Koresh Street.
From noon to 4 pm, you can buy vegetables, olive oil, and sandwiches made from the EcoBaladi produce.
