Camel market is like most other markets in israel. You can get just about everything it's a bit more pricier than jaffa and jerusalem.

Shuk HaKarmel is one crowded place I like! Its fresh products and noisy full of life vendors make you feel alive. Not to talk about the barganing skills you are forced to develop on the spot :-)

We stumbled upon 4 guys playing upbeat jazz and sat down and had lunch, and the freshest salad I have ever eaten.

Having been to Jerusalem...the Carmel Market is chock full of treats, spices, fruits, vegetables, and goods! Unless you really want something that says, "Jerusalem" on it, you can pretty much just do the Carmel Market or a market in Tel Aviv for better prices.
