Meet the region’s artisans, creatives and small businesses offering a curated selection of original and high-quality products at the weekend outdoor market and bring the kids for a host of activities from pottery to tree planting.

With a key focus on supporting the creative community in Lebanon this year, rising and established Lebanese design talent will be highlighted throughout the festival’s programme; from architectural installations and product design, to artisanal Lebanese delicacies at The Marketplace and outdoor music sessions.
