Ahead of Succot, markets have opened up in different cities across Israel, with stands selling each of the four species, the Arba Minim in Hebrew, that are used in prayer services during the holiday.

The species are the Lulav, a palm branch; the Arava, a willow branch; the Hadas, a myrtle branch; and of course the Etrog, a citron fruit.
