We were accomodated right next to the market & it was great idea. Every day we stopped by to have breakfast, dinner or just a quick snack.

I really recommend just to go and get lost in the alleys. Try everything you can from the local specialities. And definitely come back in the night, it has different vibe, bars open and music start to play & people dance.

We discussed with locals the issue of bargaining & were told, that they don’t bargain here for food, just when buying expensive things like antiques - quite different compared to the muslim quarters markets.

I liked Mahane Yehuda more than some of the other markets in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv. It was wider so much easier to walk through and a little less chaotic. I did not view it as a tourist trap. Yes, it was a good place for tourists but it was also a good place for Israelis to shop for food and household needs. It was also near Jaffa St and Ben Yehuda which are also good shopping areas. I actually was unable to find some of the touristy souvenir items I was looking for. I wanted to purchase some spices and found that even when you say a specific amount, you will be given far more than you want. Be ready to bargain and tell the vendor that you don't want so much. You will not be insulting them because this is how they do business.

There must be different prices for locals than those provided to tourists in English. Every shop we visited gave shockingly inflated prices. One place in particular, called The Halva Kingdom, gave us samples of pretty average halva and then claimed it was NIS 159 a kilo. That’s over $49 a kilo, or $22 a pound. That’s shockingly overpriced. Since there were locals in this market I must assume that there’s a Hebrew price and then there’s an English price. Pretty much sums up the place. We bought nothing and quickly returned to East Jerusalem.

Just bought 8 tiny pieces of baklava in shuk. Price was $ 17. The stand across would have come to 34$.
Are people really paying these outrageous prices? Its not the Plaza Hotel...

As many times as I have visited Mahane Yehuda , this was the first time I did so with my family .Over the years , the world famous market has changed quite a lot , losing some of its old world character to keep up with modern trends , such as chic coffee shops/stands , and hi-end speciality cheese shops /stalls .
Another thing that has changed are the number of murals painted on shop shutters which IMHO actually adds something to the market - many of these murals are highlighted in the collection of pictures on this post .

One negative thing to add though , in one case a stall/shop called Rosemary which specialises in spices etc - the shop assistant was more than happy to encourage us to buy (large) amounts which normally we wouldn't ,the bill merely had the amount to be paid without showing product or price per kilo etc very bad practice indeed .I later found out at an internet forum , that this particular shop has quite a (bad ) reputation
