We know we wanted to visit the Carmel Market but didn't think much of it. When we arrived it was a lot nicer, cleaner and diverse than we imagined. They have all types of foods, fruits, veggies, snacks, street food. We tried different food and it was great. Would definitely come back while in Tel Aviv

We went to the Carmel market a couple of times while staying in Tel Aviv. It was full of fresh and tasty food. A lively atmosphere. Great place for food shopping. There are also some souvenir stuff. There are many nice places to eat and drink around it.

Located near shoreline, great place to buy goodies, dates and good food to taste along the way. Most of shops accept only cash and hence please take in cash. It’s shut on Shabbat. Be prepared to bargain. Better if you are in a group to get a good deal

Amazing place. It gives you a feeling that you've been immersed in the core of the Middle East. Very atmospheric and lively place, full of great choice of food for every taste.

A rich taste of old Israel. Noisy. Lots of fresh produce, juices, spices, etc. Most of the stalls are retail or souvenir stores.

Be careful though - many of the stalls (here and everywhere else) will try to dupe you - where you should get back, say 40 shekels in change, they’ll try to give you back just 4 but count it to out as 10,20,30,40. And when you tell them, they apologise profusely and give you a small gift as an apology. Seems like an honest mistake, but by the 5th time someone has done exactly the same thing, you lose any hope that it’s a mistake.

Not a whole lot of hot food options but the snacks and fresh stuff more than makes up for it.

It's starting with a lot of food, vegetables fruits, cookies, bars, restaurants and continued for many other cool things like suvinires, gifts and more... Worth a visit

The market is famous and unfortunately that’s the problem. Even by end of October it was more than crowded by tourists!

But! The sales guys are definite less pushy than in other places like e.g. the Old City of Jerusalem. If you are only in Tel Aviv give it a try, if you are going to Jerusalem too, then you should better visit the Mahane Yehuda Market - a wonderful fruit and vegetable market with nice possibilities for a nice cold beer.

We visited this market a few times during our week in Tel Aviv. There are some beautiful food stalls, mixed in with some random trinkets etc... On the side streets off the market there are some cheap and tasty cafes and little places to grab a beer.

Tour through the market will take you approximately 30 minutes, however there is a lot to see. Clothes, spices, traditional food including amazing sweets, you have ti try it. Opens about 8am and closes around 6pm. They are cleaning the street from 6pm to 8pm, try to avoid it.

I stumbled upon this market on my way back to my hotel and I’m glad I did. The stacks of vegetables, spices, and pastries were all great to see and smell, and there were also several places selling souvenirs and Judaica, as well as several food stands. I had a chicken sandwich that was delicious from one of the stands on my way through and was tempted by several of the shops, but I was short on time and had to move on.
