We walked through. Takes effort getting jostled. Be very careful walking, tripping hazards, uneven, slippery. Vendors pushy, smoking in your face.

The Arab market at the Old City of Acre is one of the Top attraction there.

It is of course much smaller than the Old City Market in Jerusalem but the experience there is almost the same.
The stands, spices, clothes, souvenirs shops and of course something you won't find in Jerusalem: the fish stalls.

There are also the famous Hummus restaurants like Said or Shamsia (which I also reviewed here) that are definitely worth your time.

Pastries shops and Kna'affe are a must to really enjoy and experience the atmosphere of this market.

When you start at the nearby Turkish Bazaar and of course the Tourist Information Office it is the logical way to the Khans, the port and the Lighthouse ... so it is no effort at all to pass by there.

Just try to visit before noon as it becomes rather crowdy then.

A bit crowded, like most markets in Israel. But a very nice walk to the Akko port. Make sure you don’t bring a stroller since it is too narrow to walk with one

As well as all markets of Israel, which are located in tourist places - this is in the main part of its are designed for tourists. By contrast with the market in Jerusalem - sellers do not particularly want to bargain. And even if you are local and you know Hebrew - finding something at a good price will be hard enough. But to walk along the eastern market and feel this atmosphere - as must.

The market in Acre offers all the things you're expect at a tourist place in the Middle East; which means a mix of totally uninteresting mass-produced Chinese items and local flare; the shuk here has good schwarma and hummous as well as tourist items and shops for locals

This is just a market where the residents from Acre shop for fish, meat and vegetables. Not large at all and with late opening and early closing compared to most markets of the his kind. Lots of Chinese plastic toys, and rubbish. A few interesting shops if you look hard. Head to the Turkish bazaar for better quality although not sure of their hours either. Didn't find many shop open there either.

You feel like you are thrown back centuries. It is simple, 400 yea old winding streets and alleys. Scrumptious food, fresh fish, breads, veggies and sweets. Has a very authentic feel to it. Ver multi cultural.
