Rows of colorful, mouthwatering produce waits to be tasted at Mahane Yehuda Market, a historic food market bubbling with life.

  • I like Machane Yehuda very much. It is not too crowded (unless you go on a Friday morning - beware) and there are a huge variety of stalls from traditional spice shops to more modern, trendy versions. There are also lots of hidden alleyways and corners offering nice surprises and there are some super little restaurants. At night the market comes alive with several little bars - it is a completely different but very fun atmosphere.
  • A must-go destination if you're visiting Jerusalem. Many small local spots where you can find a huge variety of delicious foods. Sweets, pickles and olives, halva, spices and more. Come back in the evening to hang out in one of the local bars with the student crowd.
  • Very nice place. Fresh food. Open until late hours. Most people friendly
  • It has a special magical vibe. You can find there anything from cheep vegetables to fancy resturant with young cool vibe. At the day its a market and in the night its the place to go out, with a lot of cool.
  • One of my favourite places in jerusalem. In recent years many bars, restaurants and cafes have opened up here. It's a great place to walk around at, take in the aromas and colors, grab a drink and some food. Perhaps buy something. Fridays are super busy.
