Carmel Market

Carmel Market featuring markets and food
Choose one or more items to build your trip:
One of the largest markets in Tel Aviv is also one of the most exciting, a dizzying collection of food and clothing vendors, full of noise, color and energy.

Embrace the bustle of Carmel Market, an expansive, open-air shopping “shuk” that sells Middle Eastern food, clothing and souvenirs. Don’t let the vastness of the market inhibit you instead enjoy its noise and size on a long stroll past its many stalls.

This particular shuk has a long history in Tel Aviv. Marvel at a market that began in the 1920s and swiftly became a crucial part of the city’s trade and infrastructure. In the 21st century it has boomed once more as an authentic shopping experience for visitors to the city.

Prepare to sample some of the finest flavors of Israel while exploring the food vendors scattered throughout Carmel Market. Hummus, kebabs, pita and shakshuka are available in plentiful supply, alongside international fare, fruit drinks and beer. Choose between food stalls, where you can pick up quick bites on the go, or restaurants for a longer dining experience.

The market is also the spot to pick up ingredients for home cooking. Join locals shopping for the freshest fruits and vegetables. Shop at spice stores to create your own intense Middle Eastern flavors. Make sure you try halva, a very popular sweet treat.

Once you’ve had enough to eat, look around the north end of the market for fashion items and souvenirs. Shop for bargains on colorful clothing or pick up electronics if you forgot crucial items on your trip here.

Most of the market is located along Carmel Street, a long and busy thoroughfare in the Kerem HaTeimanim neighborhood, just south of City Center. Wander around the surrounding blocks to see a wider variety of stalls and vendors.

Carmel Market is open throughout the week except during Shabbat, the period of rest that begins Friday evening and continues throughout Saturday. Local buses run from the central bus and train stations to outside the market. Use nearby metered parking if you are driving here.

"A nice hotel right by the beach, very centrally located, and had nice staff and nice view. My room smelled a little bit like smoke when I first came in but other than that it was very clean and spacious."
