Hauts-de-France: establishment of a live market for Eid Al-Adha 2022

In France, representatives and associations of Muslim worship are working hard to allow Muslim faithful to celebrate the Aid El Kebir festival in better conditions. Indeed, on this occasion, a live market was set up on June 25 at the Aire des vents in Dugny. And this, in order to allow the Algerian diaspora but also the Muslim community to obtain their sheep; in accordance with trade, environmental and health regulations established by the French government.

Thus, animals dedicated for this occasion, mainly sheep, will be sold there. But not only, the Muslim faithful will also be entitled at slaughter of their sheep at the approved slaughterhouse in Creil. However, for those who cannot travel to this area; these can approach the slaughterhouses of the departments neighboring Creil, in particular Seine-et-Marne, Val d’Oise, Oise, etc.

As a reminder, the French authorities have prohibited the slaughter of sheep outside approved slaughterhouses. Indeed, before giving the animal to the families, the latter must attest, by the note of a sanitary stamp, the animal dedicated to the feast of the sacrifice.

However, failure to comply with these measures involves penalties of up to 15,000 euros and six months in prison.
