  • I am a sucker for open air markets (farmer's markets, products, etc). I love the atmosphere and color of these places. Old Jerusalem has a lot of narrow streets, the shops tend to be narrow and long.....  more »
  • Mahane Yehuda was a really nice market to visit during our stay in Jerusalem to buy local products. There is wide choice of nuts, dried fruits, bread, spices etc. A must to visit while in Jerusalem!  more »

  • A vibrant market located in Jerusalem, Israel. What is particularly memorable is its art. The place incorporates many arts, which visually appeal to people. There are also various kinds of shops, including fruit stores, coffee shops, and restaurants. The contrast of colors, in addition, is memorable. We had a nice local Israeli food in a traditional restaurant along the street. Highly recommended for anyone visiting the area.
  • Love the place was so fun. Shop owners and very friendly and interactive. They give u taste tests. It's a super cool and exciting different shopping experience. And to top it off the food there is VERY fresh. Highly recommend going there
