Immerse yourself in Israeli culture and get lost whilst wondering through Tel Aviv’s local markets, selling everything from local souvenirs, antique furnishings to fresh, Israeli produce.
Exploring the Jaffa Flea Market, you’ll uncover antiques and vintage finds, unique pieces of furniture and art, clothing boutiques and jewellery designers, all nestled in with places to eat, and upbeat bars with live music performances. Head down to Shuk HaCarmel, Tel Aviv’s main bazaar to pick up some fresh groceries, the fisherman’s daily catch and the most aromatic herbs and spices.
Adjacent to the Shuk HaCarmel, the Nahalat Binyamin Craft Market which opened in 1987 is open on Tuesdays and Fridays, packed full of local artists and craftsmen moulding ceramic pots and hand making jewellery whilst behind their stalls. Found in the artistic Tel Aviv neighborhood of Florentine, Levinsky Market is the place to bring a taste of Israel home — we recommend picking up some Za’atar, Hawajj and Baharat from one of the many spice stalls.
More centrally, Sarona Market is Israel’s largest indoor culinary market with 40 different eateries, open seven days a week.
Amongst our favorites are Noam Ekhause; an Israeli photographer, now based in New York producing beautiful fine arts, portrait and fashion photography and Dina Goldstein, a multi-disciplinary artist living and working in Tel Aviv.
