Until recently, Tel Aviv had three notable covered markets: Tel Aviv Port, Sarona Market and Shuk Tzafon in Ramat Hahayal.Now there is a fourth: Rothschild-Allenby – so new that as of this writing it has been open only four weeks. It has become the hot place in the center of town to meet up with friends for a nosh or to get a meal – even if you like to eat at odd hours. You can relax with a glass of wine or fuel yourself with coffee; grab a fresh croissant on the fly or sit down to a small feast. The market is open seven days a week, 7 a.m. to 10 p.m., with some vendors staying open as late as 2 a.m., making it insomniac-friendly ground.
