Amazing place to get to learn about the local culture. Full of colors, tastes, flavours and soul. I stop there whenever I'm in Israel.

Strolling through this market was a great experience. Produce, nuts, and just about everything you can imagine--readily available and all delicious! Many opportunities to stock up on gift items.

The Mahane Yehuda Market (the shuk) is a great place to visit, both during the day and at night when most shops close up and restaurants and bars open. This is the unfiltered, non-tourist-oriented Israel, with hundreds if not thousands of real Israelis, from the...More
