  • It was a blast from start to finish! Food was interesting and original but the real deal was the atmosphere and the vibe around having a ‘good’ time. It was certainly a unique experience for our visit...  more »
  • This market I loved, it closes late except on Fridays that close at noon for Sabbath day. 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!
