I love the contrast of cultures and customs, everything they have is quality and the bars and restaurants to which cooler.
Really great atmosphere. The people and the fresh produce make this place one of the best markets. After you're done with tasting all the amazing food there are a number of bars to sit and relax and watch the world go by. Most have happy hour at various times.
Perfect to know the local life. You can get very nice street food there. Delicious pita, fresh fruit and Israel beer. We visited it almost everyday while stayed in Jerusalem. Recommended!
