“"Experience the Israeli Culture"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

To see, taste, hear and smell the real Israel, this is the best place to go! You taste anything from candy to kabob, and hear the vendors competing with their prices. The jewelry, clothing, home goods, and everything in between can be bargained for. Friday's are the busiest, but best time to see the hustle and bustle of the locals trying to buy everything they need before sundown.

“A must see in Tel Aviv, especially on Friday morning.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

I joined a local friend for his Friday morning shopping ritual and absolutely loved it! The market was crowded with shoppers buying challah, pomegranates, salty cheese, figs, fish and baklavah for the Shabbat dinner. Everyone was telling each other Shabbat shalom! and you really get into the spirit of Tel Aviv, which can seem a bit bland after Jerusalem.

“Fruit cocktail, veggis cocktail and others”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

If you want really to taste the medetranian fresh food, you canon miss shuk hacarmel. You can good prices and good hospitality. The people in the market are simple and want to give food from their hearts. Tel aviv is not done without a long visit to the shuk

“A must see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

The camel market is definitely a must see. Several blocks of every artesian you can think of and stalls of produce/spices/ and every kind of clothing and household goods. If you are looking for something and can't find it here it probably cant be found. Lots of places to eat..you can spend several hours just looking around at the stalls and the people

“Very typical market.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012 via mobile

Very good place to visit. The market is a long street in the center of Tel aviv.
You can find everything for eating like falafel, shawarma, fresh fruit and more.
Don't forget to pass there if you stay in.the city.
