This is an old-style spice, nut and produce market that is probably unchanged for 50+ years. Great prices and selection for fresh products. It would help to speak Hebrew or Arabic.

It's best to take a tour guide, but if not, just walk around and try everything from Falafel to Knafe.Than walk up the hill through the stairs look for the statues.

I went to Haifa to visit a friend and she took me to Wadi Nisnas. I loved everything about it. So much local art, lovely little homes, welcoming authentic Arab restaurants! I have nothing negative to say. It's a delightful place.
