Ra'anana may be a modern city but it is taking a step back to the good old days when a "farmers' market" was a regular feature in towns and cities, reports www.mynet.co.il. As of this Friday, the city's park will become the site of a weekly "farmers' market," at which dozens of farmers from around Israel will display and sell a variety of fresh fruit, vegetables, cheeses, breads and other food products, many of them organically produced. According to the report, farmers' markets have seen a revival in recent years as they enable small, private producers to sell their wares, which are often seasonal and local, directly to the public. The idea for a farmers' market in Ra'anana came from the farmers' market in Tel Aviv (Market Report; Metro, January 9) , a successful venture that belongs to the international Slow Food organization, a body that promotes the production of high-quality, cleanly produced foods at reasonable prices. The Ra'anana farmers' market will be open from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. every Friday, and will feature 45 to 50 stands offering a variety of foods. No plastic bags will be used.
