An amazing cultural experience! Full of life, with great stalls and restaurants. A must-do in Jerusalem. We were there one a Friday afternoon, so perhaps the vibe was extra lively because it was right before Shabbat (not sure!).

Fun experience of a busy market during the day and bars/night life as it gets dark. Test out the amazing foods here.

This outdoor food market was a must to see! Hundreds of food vendors from all over, selling everything you could want to eat! We opted for a restaurant, on the advice of our taxi driver, called Azura, which was outstanding! Every dish we ordered was delicious and home-cooked. We took everything back with us to the hotel, because we couldn't bear to leave even one bite! A must!

Great to walk and absorb the atmosphere but beware of scammers selling overpriced food particularly the halva kingdom

I didn't "visit." I basically walked through, sometimes more than once a day, most days for a ten day stay in Jerusalem. So it's a world-class market for good reason in that it's incredibly beautiful and yes, busy, especially on Friday, and also, the food is great (it's a little overpriced though, especially for produce and fresh juice; if you don't know the prices, you will be overcharged for many things, not because you are being scammed I don't think in that the prices are often posted, but just that they are higher than some other markets for the same things). Expect someone did charge me $8 USD for about 3 oz. of pomegranate juice, which was annoying. At any rate, I wouldn't sit and eat here given the crowds. But to takeaway is a miracle. There is a little empanada place that had the most delicious empanadas ever -- I had curried eggplant, mushroom, and spinach ones for 60 shekels.

The only minor issue is that so many spreads and such aren't in English, and so you may have no idea what you are buying, just a head's up because I was often struggling to figure out what was a fish paste vs. an eggplant spread (I like one of these and not the other). Salespeople aren't always incredible helpful here. Sometimes I used Google translate on my phone with luck.

It's great for hard to find produce, and if you are self-catering, you will be in Heaven, although your wallet may be a little lighter than you expect. But a good scene. Fun place to people watch as well as it attracts a very diverse crowd.

Go hungry. The market has a great selection of snacks, and other food. You can eat for a few days at the market. It also has fruits, vegetables and some high end other foods, such as olive oil and salt.

I purposely went to the market on a Friday afternoon. It was exceptionally busy. So if you are going with young children, be prepared to hold their hand tightly!

The assortment of food, spices, drinks, and everything else is fantastic. I was even able to get a gluten-free challah for Shabbat at Gluless.

Now that I have gone on a Friday afternoon, I will be honest and tell you that it was an insane decision. I will definitely returned to the market the next time I am in Jerusalem, but not right before Shabbat. However, if you want to show your children how observant people get ready for Shabbat, this is the place to go.
