Jaffa is a must see when visiting the Tel Aviv area. Aside from the old city- which has always been a gem, with its alleys and galleries, there has been a revival to it the last times I had visited it. The flea market area in particular. I recommend not going on Friday morning when it is too crowded by locals. Late mornings around lunch time is perfect. The cute restaurants in the flea market area, like Onzo or Pua, are fantastic. Seating is outside- great for this COVID era. If looking to pamper yourself or to bring an original present back home, I discovered a shop with spa creams, soaps and masks, with the Dead Sea minerals, very reasonably priced called City Spa, located on a small street called Beit Eshel close to the Clock Tower. I was sent by a friend from back home (from the US) to buy a specific foot cream, and the owner (Gamliel) went out of his way to bring me that product after he ran out of it that day. Exceptional service and great product. The nice thing about this revived area in Jaffa, of the flea market, its restaurants, the street shops- flat and all wheelchair/ stroller accessible.

The Jafa Flea market used to be one of the best of its kind anywhere. It is still a place that one will enjoy visiting.Still most of the quality antique shops are gone. Owners have retired or moved into online auction which cuts costs considerably.
Instead many restaurants and pubs moved in following Pua which has been there for years and the yappy crowd which occupies new residence projects in Jaffa and the increased number of tourists arriving in Tel Aviv.
So for th next couple of years (2020, 2021) you may still enjoy some fun shopping and chaming food and drink establishments. After that? well this is the Middle East -do not try to make predictions.

You will spend hours here. Might as well give it a full day. Shops of handcrafts, design and some of the best food. In the night, bars and restaurants move into the streets and live performances happen. Go! Don’t miss out.

It was a lot of fun spending the day in Jaffa. Included was the famous flea market. Yes there is a lot of junk (one man's trash...) but there are a lot of cool things too. My son bought a couple of old Mercedes key chains for what seemed like a lot at the time. Come to find out they are worth twice as much on line. Our friend also bought a beautiful rug from one of the locals. Get a cold drink and walk the many streets of the market. Happy hunting!

It was fun to walk around and look at the stuff, but some of the sales people are a bit pushy. One guy blocked me from getting out of his booth. I think I would have been a bit nervous walking around alone. My friends did find some stuff they bought, but the quality was just so-so.

The fleamarket was very nice, maybe a bit untidy though. There are many second hand and vintage shops around the fleamarket which maybe even better then the fleamarket itself. There's a nice vibe to the area. Very bohemian. Lot of nice cafes, restaurant and bars around there as well.

My wife and I for a long time wanted to visit this place. And in order to just look at interesting unusual things that are sold nowhere except at the flea markets, and in order to buy a couple of things home. There are a lot of different souvenir shops here. There are many different restaurants and cafes to relax while your visit. And there are many different shops with antiques(both simple things and furniture) here too. A couple of times we saw outright garbage on sale, but it's a few places like that. Most of what you come across here is either just interesting to see, or you can even buy it home. Most importantly, don't forget to bargain. In this country, and in such a flea market, it is quite appropriate and sometimes saves some money. The main thing is not to go too far, you should always respect each other in trade.
One last thing: before you go here, check it's working time in web. On some days you can see more here than on others. Or stay longer, as the shops are open much longer.

My man took me there earlier this week and we began our visit with a late breakfast at Pua restaurant, which I have already reviewed. If anything, it's even better than a few months ago, because it's had some renovations. The food was as good as before. I love Jaffa and the flea market, which was just that in the 1980s, when everyone wore rags and my teenage daughters, on a tight budget, followed the fashion by shopping for grunge there. A couple of decades later, it underwent a facelift, as has the entire area around it. It is now full of quirky restaurants and coffee bars - some, like Pua, are furnished entirely from the market - all have good vegan options and many are even non-kosher (my magnet). The market has some beautiful art galleries, selling contemporary Israeli arts and crafts (my favorite go-to place is Arti-Shook; look for pottery by Igor), designer clothing, as well as very reasonable and stylish second-hand stuff. A couple of years ago I found a 1970s original hand-embroidered Rumanian blouse which had never been worn and was in fabulous condition. I paid NIS 150 for it.
After wandering around spending money, we stopped at Capitolina (the name given by the Roman invaders to Jerusalem some 2000 years ago, at the fall of the Second Temple), the best ice-cream parlor in Israel. Again, predictably, I chose pink grapefruit and Campari sorbet together with a scoop of fruit of the forest sorbet. Uncharacteristically, my man did the same. Highly recommended.
Next week is Passover and I am planning another trip to the Jaffa flea market, this time with a couple of teenage grandchildren.

Again I profess and since you don't know me.. please trust me.. I heart open air markets and the possibility that at such I might find some amazing little treasure.. I always put them down as a must see and this one and the one in Tel Aviv were so horrible and such a total let down I honestly feel like I have to tell EVERYONE because I came to tripadvisor and others were like..yeah its good?????????????????????/ what? uhm nope it's not. This one in particular lets folks spread out their actual stuff that should have been tossed in the garbage, like lids off of coffee jars?? and don't get excited like it's cool antique lids from say 1967.. nope just stuff say they had when they finished their nescafe coffee and were thinking..hmm market day today..what to bring?? not even joking. Other handy treats.. old socks, not vintage just old crummy socks and lids to pans? weird. Again I will rail on that this country has artistic cool ppl so why are they not selling awesome stuff at these open air markets... so at one stop (not here ) but where there were artists making stuff and a women's co-op I scooped up the most beautiful handmade hamsa.. for $10 US.. so that was cool..so why couldn't I find something like that at this market?? its just old crap and that was sad.. but if you don't believe me and still feel compelled tie this trip in with your day to go and do Jaffa that way you won't waste your day.. trust me.. and the only random cool thing I saw was the large USA hotdog out near where the beverages were.. totally weird but at least it was one quirky thing?? btw there are no vintage strores per se.. only one that really had no true vintage just old used clothes and yes there is a difference.. my hand me downs vs a legit find.. but I suspect that those who put how awesome this flea market is must have business there.. cause it smelled like a wet basement to me?
