Weekly market showcases traditional products of 'productive citizens'

(MENAFN- Jordan Times) AMMAN — University student Rustom Chukchi brought honey all the way from northern Caucasus to showcase it to the Jordanian public in Amman on Saturday.

Chukchi said he relied on the heritage of his ancestors to be able to continue his studies in Jordan.

'I study here in Amman and I wanted to find a way to support myself financially so I thought about selling honey from my homeland,' he told The Jordan Times as he showcased his products at the weekly Productive market in Amman.

Chukchi was among 26 participants who took part in the market organised under the umbrella of the initiative Ana Montaj ("I am productive" in Arabic).

Shan Tsay, who initiated the idea of the market, said the weekly event is designed to support productive people in Jordan.

'This market is held for the second year. The idea of this campaign is to support every productive individual whether they are Circassians, Palestinians, Jordanians or Armenians,' she stated.

A wide range of traditional handicraft items, traditional food and accessories were on display at the market.

Safaa al Zmaili, another participant, showcased different kinds of fruit preserves.

Although she isa teacher, she said she wanted to take advantage of the holiday break to make different kinds of fruit preserves to support her family financially.

'This bazaar helps me get exposed to more people and promote my products to the public,' she noted.

Organised at the International Circassian Cultural Academy in Amman, the bazaar will be held every Saturday until summer time.
