One of the most famous markets in Israel, the Carmel Market dates back to 1920 and has been expanding ever since. Situated at the heart of Tel Aviv, the 'Shuk' begins at the major downtown intersection of Shenkin, Allenby, and King George streets, and ends a short distance away from the beach.
From sunrise to sunset, the Carmel Market is crowded with people from all walks of life, and vendors offer an endless variety of products: spices, fruits and vegetables, meat and fish, as well as clothes, household goods, and more.
Whether shopping for groceries, out to lunch, or just looking for a charming stroll full of sights, sounds, and scents, the Carmel Market attracts many visitors, tourists, and daily shoppers.
