  • For you that is full of mi-mi-mi and does not support something more popular, skip to the next attraction and don't waste your time! Now, if you're the type that loves to know cultural differences and the everyday life of the local people who are visiting, this is the right place! Rico in colors, flavors and aromas, the Carmel Market is a kind of summary of the local culture. The hustle and bustle of people and shouting of the sellers is something you don't usually see anywhere. In some bands they put music and are performing to attract buyers. A cheap one to see! Try the candies, fruits, almonds, olives, try everything! It's all very tasty and with more accessible prices than in the rest of the city. If you see water has a running that you don't know where it came from, either the flies you find in some places and focus on diversity that this fair presents. Access is easy and it certainly is an obligatory stop in Tel Aviv.

  • This market is always on my check-list of places to go to every time I visit. It's such a vibrant and eclectic market, where you can find anything from raw foods (butcher, fish monger), cooked/prepared foods, clothing of all kinds (including bras and underwear) as well as all sorts of knick-knacks and touristy items. It's very crowded and often vendors are either screaming out to the crowds to garner attention, at each other, and often even at customers. It's all part of the lively experience. Highly recommended!
  • One of the best markets in Israel. A huge variety of fresh fruits and vegetables of all kinds for a decent/cheap price. You can also find many other types of food, such as fresh meat and great cheese.
  • This is the most authentic place in Tel Aviv. A must see. You can shop here everything from vegetables to tobacco. There are plenty little restaurants with all kinds of world cuisine. The atmosphere here is awesome and people are very warm. This place will give you the exact reflection and taste of real Israel and it's very welcoming residents. I know this place for over 25 years and it is just the same as it was back then... and I like it a lot!
  • Super cool market with this amazing authentic atmosphere, you can find here everything a market can offer. All sort of Cloth you cab only think of, fresh fruit and vegetables, sweets, sunglasses and jewelry, fast food, bar, fresh fish and more.. highly recommend defently a must if you are in Tel Aviv. You won't regret! And don't forget to argue! ;)
  • The Carmel Flea Market is in the heart of Tel Aviv. Great place for fruits and vegetables, fresh baked goods, cheeses, or the little gifts you would buy for all the friends back home. Most of all though, it's a great place to experience Israeli street food. There are lots of little gems to eat at here. Shakshuka, humus, kabob, falafel, Tel Aviv Mix grill, borekas and much much more. It's a must for visitors.
