All Nations cafe’ @ Ein Haniya, Friday May 9th

leave a comment »

This from All Nations Cafe:

Last December, before the winter, we had our first Ein Haniya Fair. Ever since then, farmers and conscious consumers have been waiting for the fair to return.

Next week on Friday, May 9th, starting at 10 am:

Local farmers’ and shepherds’ organic produce, home made food, arts and crafts, and live music.

It’s all happening at Ein Haniya Spring, on the Wallaja/Har Gilo road between Jerusalem and Bethlehem.

Getting to Ein Haniya Spring

Coming from Jerusalem, you go to Malha train station, near the shopping mall (which is easily reached by Jerusalem city buses 4,5,6,17,18,24,31,160-167,440) turn to the railway station and follow the Wallaja road to Gush Etzion. After crossing the railway line you can either hike a few kilometers or easily hitchhike with any car going in that direction. About a kilometer after passing a checkpoint you will see a dirt road on your left hand – the spring market is a few meters up that road.

Coming from the West Bank and from Gush Etzion, you go from Beit Jala and Har Gilo towards Wallaja and Jerusalem. Down the steep road to the bottom of Refa’im valley, you see Ein Haniya spring on your right.

What is it with chefs and manifesto these days? Seriously. We get it. You don’t just randomly put stuff on plates. You’ve got a grand idea. But you know what? Sometimes all we care about is if your grand idea tasted any good. Because if it isn’t, then it’s just a big pile of crap.
