  • Walking through this market you can buy whatever you wish from all types of fruits, vegetables, nuts, dried fruits. There are also a lot of restaurants and bars to choose from. We stopped at one place...  more »
  • Is a market with a variety of food from spices, vegetables, dumplings braided loaves (challah) all forms, halva and all very clean, if you can walk on Friday, before Shabbat, to see the variety, plus the prices are much more economical than in the supermarket

  • Been here three times, on three different trips to Israel. Enjoyed the food, atmosphere, and pleasantness of the staff. The food section is not extensive, yet what they do have is unique, well put-together and can satisfy a wide range of palates. Besides the great taste, the food is healthy! There is more than an adequate selection of dishes to meet the needs of my wife and myself; vegetarian, gluten-free & lactose intolerant. The restaurant is Mehadrin Kosher--without which there would be nothing to discuss. Try it--you'll like it!
  • Absolutely fantastic. Very vibrant and interesting, the quality of the food and the overall experience are worth the visit. The market is full of life and nice little culinary treasures
  • Great spot to grab a beer/ food and people watch! We had a few beers at different stands and dinner at the Wok Market. Very big portions and super tasty! Had a super fun time walking around lots of fresh fruits, veggies, pastries, spices and small food stands.
  • This is a review for the Machane Yehuda outdoor market, not for a tour company of a similar name. A wonderful colorful outdoor market. Tucked among the stalls selling fresh fruits, vegetables, cheese, fish, meat, halva, coffee, and salads are some excellent small restaurants. Walking through the market is a treat for all the senses.
  • One can find something for every one at Shuk Machane Yehuda, during the day, the aroma and atmosphere of an old fashioned market place and then the late night vibes of a small town beer hall. A truly unique experience, any time of day or night.

Where to stay in Jerusalem

Although it lacks a big selection of mid-range options, Jerusalem provides plenty of choices in the top-end hotel category. The Old City contains the bulk of Jerusalem's small hotels, inexpensive hostels, and religious hospices, all of which appeal to budget-conscious travelers. West Jerusalem offers additional options in the form of guesthouses and bigger hotels, some of which boast five-star ratings. If you just need a bed, consider a youth hostel, where you can choose between private and common rooms with Wi-Fi included.
