  • Fresh and tasty food! You can find here almost anything related to food - fruits, vegetables, meats, spices, pastry, cheeses, local and international street food based on Israeli and Latin cuisine and much more. Everything is fresh and taste so good! Many small restaurants and bars were opened in the past year along and around the Carmel market. Be creative and explore the allies connect to the main road of the market (Carmel st.) - you will find lots of surprises. The Carmel market is super packed on Fridays late morning until early afternoon - this when most Israelis are doing there shopping - and when you can experience a live and active market!
  • Wonderfull market that can get very crowded. Sellers are friendly and not pushy like on other markets. Dont miss the small falafel stand!
  • Open air bustling 'in your face' market. People are pushy, loud, have little respect for personal space, and the experience is wonderful. Explore eateries of all levels, including stalls, restaurants, and on Allenby st bars.
  • 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!
  • Excellent market, some of the best and bargain stands for locals are actually not on the main street but on the side ones. Mostly vegtables, beef, pork chicken fish and spices. Great olives and some food stands worth a visit.
