  • A wonderful market, slightly crowded, sometimes a lot, but a pleasure to turn around, look, smell and eat. It becomes trendy and Tel Aviv with all the bars, restaurants and cafes in the area.

  • Preparing for the trip to Tel Aviv read about this market as the most colorful and rich and on goods and impressions. A little disappointed. It is not so big, if without the crowd - you can go through the whole thing for ten minutes). A large variety of products also did not see, all as in any market, only prices a little higher. Not too clean, but shakshuka still ate, because there was a point. It's delicious!) But i don't recommend pomegranate juice, it's too diluted there, and it's for 20 shakers.

  • Always fun. There's also a place to buy fresh fruit and vegetables and a place to hang out. Lots of places of food of all kinds with a special atmosphere.

  • One of the best market in Tel-aviv you have everything....Nice vegetables cheese shops. All kind of clothes good street food authentic restaurant all around toys for children's asian shops. meat.... fish... shops you won't be disappointed. Must be there .you could easily spend their hall day if not all of it
  • I can’t help myself. I come at least 2 to 3 times when I visit just to walk around. If you don’t like crowds this isn’t the place for you. Especially on Friday when even more people are shopping for the weekend. There is nothing you can’t but at this market. Bargaining is acceptable although not sure at the food stalls. Spices, candies, desserts, cheese, meats, fruits and vegetables are all for sale. It is a must at least once to experience this environment.
  • Wonderful. Very local, nice fresh produce, very cheap falafel. Usually crowded, but it does have a vibe, even the fact that they mostly throw out trash onto the streets and a bulldozer comes every evening to clean up felt fascinating rather than gross.
  • Years ago this market was a great place for buying fresh produce at a reasonable price. Today it's a tourist attraction.Restaurants,souvenirs etc..Not many stalls for fresh produce left. Shopping has become very expensive there. Many sellers don't use price tags but make the prices according to customers. Beware even if there are: More and more prices are for half a kg.The half written in Hebrew or very small in a corner. As is the 90 Agurot added to the Shekels. Often it's also impossible to check if the weight is as the seller says. Many of which are unfriendly. So it might be still a experience for tourists to walk along but you shouldn't buy there. Shopping in supermarkets or propper shops is cheaper and you don't get cheated . Be also very careful. Pickpockets around!
  • On sunny Fridays the market is packed full, so it is better to come as early as possible
