HaCarmel Market Tips (13)

Carmel market

After a coffee break in Sheinkin street we ended up at the entrance of Carmel Market (Shuk HaCarmel). It’s a large (I guess the biggest in Tel Aviv) lively marketplace that spreads all over Carmel street but also on some side streets but of course if you have already visit other Middle Easte souks you wont get excited but it’s exotic enough for a modern city like Tel Aviv.

We spent lot of time there as we love markets because it’s always a place where you can see a daily routine of locals. The shouting vendors add to its lovely atmosphere, have in mind that it gets crowded and it’s extra smelly in some parts which is fine for me but if you are used of your big sanitized super market you may feel uncomfortable :)

Here locals along with visitors stroll around the colorful stalls buying food supplies, fish, meat, cheese, vegetables, fruits, flowers, pastries, souvenirs, fake tshirts, dead sea products etc We bought dried fruits but also tried some fresh pomegranate juice which was very refreshing.

It’s open daily except Saturday

On Tuesdays and Fridays there’s a side market with crafts and jewelry along Nahalat Binyamin street

Carmel Market, a crowd of people!

Known as 'Shuk Ha'Carmel", the Carmel Market is the city's biggest marketplace, that is worth visiting if you are in Tel Aviv. It's possible to find everything, from chlotes to pastries, from fresh fruit to exotic spices.
Try fresh pomegranate juice! It's marvellous!!!

Souk Ha'Carmel for local shopping

Tel Aviv’s biggest and busiest marketplace, filled with colorful stalls and shouting vendors selling everything from dried fruits and exotic spices, souvenirs to clothing, Judaica to fruit juices. Remember to bargain for the best prices - often just putting the item down and starting to walk away will initiate the price drop. NEVER pay the asking price...

Everything you want !

The Hacarmel Market is really the place where you can find everything you need in terms of food. The range of product is really huge and all are fresh and look much better than in supermarket.
It is also a great place to have a feeling of middle east in the heart of TA.

Shouk

Every Middle Eastern town and city has one - the produce market where fresh fruit, vegetables, bread and dairy products can be purchased, and, to one side of the main drag, the foul smelling meat section. Tel Aviv is no exception. As with most of these places, if it was it was in Western Europe or North America, it would probably be closed down overnight and replaced with indoor, white tiled, sanitised, soulless environs. Thankfully, those rules do not apply here. Full of character, the real essence of Tel Aviv is caught here - especially on Friday as people shop to they drop for the fear of running out of food during shabbat -:)

HaCarmel - a real attraction

Many times a daily routine of the locals is the best tourism attraction. We run to such places to learn more about the life of the people and to taste the real local experience. After a long journey of 5 years, I have finally started settling in the country which I love the most. During the first week I was seeing my home town through the eyes of a tourist. Tel Aviv has changed during the 5 years, while I was away and missing it.
When my parents offered me to join them and go to the Market I of course said yes.
Vegetables, fruits, fish, meet, spices, clothes, everything can be found at the HaCarmel.
I enjoyed the celebration of the smells and colors.
Seeing the vendors, working hard selling their products, made me appreciate these people a lot. They get up at 5am every morning so we'll have the fresh food on our tables. They will be friendly with the tourists and will pose for the cameras. Some will handle a conversation about pretty much everything, you choose the topic. And some will try to sell you things that you don't even need, but you'll still buy it, just to remember the experience.
You're free to taste everything you like, the vendors will be happy to introduce you to whatever they sell. And of course, to feel like a local you're welcome to bargain, sometimes. It's a market after all.

Ha-Carmel Market

This is the biggest market of Tel-Aviv and possibly the entire country. If you like food markets you shouldn't miss this place. A word of caution, this is not for claustrophobic people! This place is always crowded, noisy and smelly. Well, if you feel you need a break, just step out, walk about 20 metres and you are right on the beach.

Carmel Market

The Carmel Market runs alongside the Yemenite Quarter and offers a livelier shopping experience than the usual air-conditioned supermarkets and high street stores that dominate the rest of the city.

Large crowds make their way along the street past the dozens of stalls from very first thing in the morning. Sweet-smelling bakeries, exotic fruits and spices, and fresh carcasses hanging from butcher's hooks mix with counterfeit designer clothes and electronic toys. The crumbling old buildings and dark narrow lanes, covered by tarpaulins, make for an atmospheric place to visit. This is as close as Tel Aviv gets to the traditional image of the exotic Middle Eastern souk - loud, lively, colourful and a melting pot of smells, sounds and sights.

It's fairly small, with one main street and numerous small alleyways and sidestreets running off it. To be honest, if you've been to souks or markets anywhere else in the Middle East (or Africa or Asia for that matter) this is likely to be a bit dull and disappointing. It's not really that lively, nor is it that interesting or exotic. But then I suppose everything is relative and compared to the rest of modern Tel Aviv this is probably as 'exotic' as you'll find!
