The markets are much the same as in most countries, just with an Israeli theme. It is well worth seeing though and the food is delicious. Follow it with a walk down to the nearby beach.

The BEST BOUREKAS are here. Enter the market from the Allenby entrance and maybe 15 feet in on the right side is this tiny restaurants run for generations by Turkish Immigrants to Israel who are charming, humble and will feed you like royalty. EAT all the Bourekas, cheese, potato, spinach, spinach and cheese and dont forget to sample their homemade pickles which will top the taste of any you have eaten before!! Enjoy!!!!!!

This market was amazing. Sweet and succulent fruit and fresh fruit juices readily available. Merchandise of all kinds were fairly prices. Even cosmetics were good. I bought some skin lotions that are really working well for me. In flowers of unique varieties also available in the market. The options are endless

We here here two weeks ago on the 9th. November.(happened to be my birthday so I am sure of the date !) What a fantastic place. The market "buzzes" Very busy but great fun. You must try the pommegranite in a tub eaten with a spoon, delicious ! The smells of fresh bread and spices. You have to go and absorb the atmosphere !

Try to walk through this food-oriented market for locals on Friday morning when it is most busy. Ask the shopkeepers what some of the unfamiliar fruits and vegetables are--it's likely that you'll be offered a sample to taste. I went last week with my niece who lives nearby and it's interesting that every local has his or her own favorite stall at which to buy things despite the appearance to the untrained eye that many stalls are selling the exact same products. The produce is so fresh because nearly all of it is grown nearby, even bananas and avocados. Fruits and veggies are always in season in Israel and very little comes from elsewhere. This is a real revelation to an American from the Northeast like me, where growing seasons are so short and the majority of such items are imported from so far away during most of the year. I especially enjoyed eating the breads (notably the mini-challahs) right out of the bag, still warm and crusty and so egg flavored. I also always love the colorful displays of exotic spices which are so photogenic.
