The market - Normal. Handmade - Interesting.
Aug 2021
The market itself is not very different from other markets. It's just a little bigger. The same products and souvenirs. The same smells and puddles.
Another thing is to get there on the day the hand-maders come.
This is already more interesting, and for tourists, for example, I advise to go there on such a day. Then there you can see, and maybe buy, some interesting hand-made souvenirs. But be prepared for the fact that after a long and possibly interesting story about how it was all done, you will have to pay a high price. You can try to bargain. In this country, bargaining is a lot where people love. Not everywhere, of course, but in many places.
We caught them on Tuesday. From morning to about 17:00.

COlorfull (altough crowded) gem!
May 2021
Great location. I think that on Friday morning it's a totally different vibe.
Fun just to hang around, taste the seasonal produce and enjoy!
It's going to be hot and crowded! Find a frozen drink and enjoy slurping it while you go though it :)

Mediterranean market at its best
Apr 2021 • Couples
Don’t miss it while you are in Tel Aviv.
Can be very crowded sometimes.
Get into the passages and cornered streets.
A real Mediterranean experience

Authentic Tel Aviv
Mar 2021
If you want to experience the authentic Tel Aviv, a visit to the Carmel Market on a Friday, ahead of Shabbat, is a feast for the eyes. Located in the intersection of Tel Aviv’s main streets and just a 10-minute walk to the beach, Shuk HaCarmel, a lively community of locals and tourists, will stimulate all your senses from the hustle and bustle, colors and smells, to the traders announcing their crazy price deals in their loudest voices. As you walk alongside the maze of traditional fresh produce stalls, you will also find hidden bars and authentic Israeli eateries to enhance your cultural experience. Pack your camera, wear comfortable shoes, and go on an empty stomach!

Entertaining Cultural Experience
Dec 2019
A must see when visiting Tel Aviv. Located in an attractive surrounding neighborhood, the market is bustling with locals and tourists. The produce is lovely and abundant. It was fun being introduced to a delicious unknown fruit by its grower. Lots of little things sold in this area at a variety of stalls. A very entertaining cultural experience.

Colorful, fun, slightly overwhelming market
Jun 2019
I love coming to this market. It's absolutely stock-full of anything you could need, from delicious, freshly-made foods (zaatar pita, spices, figs, dates, falafel) to clothing to anything and everything. It's normally pretty packed, and even more so right before the Sabbath starts on Friday nights because everyone's trying to buy things at the last minute, so be prepared for crowds.

Lovely market
Jan 2020
The Carmel market was a good experience - very large, very vibrant, easy to reach and an opportunity to mix up with locals a bit. One of the best markets I've visited in the country.
