When the windows are shut and tourists head back to their hotels and guest houses, the famous Tel Aviv market, Shuk HaCarmel can relax. Good night lights, good night bright colors; until the market place reopens the following day.

Shuk HaCarmel after dark


Last sales before closing


19:00 and the local's start to close


Merchants throw away fruit, trash in the streets - tomorrow brings a new day


Streets of the shuk covered in trash


Shuk scenes


Merchants store their remaining merchandise behind the main streets


Work items


20:30 and a few remaining businesses stay open to sift through what they can use again tomorrow


Taking a break before continuing with street cleaning


Once the trash is cleared, water will be used to wash the day away


A dumpster arrives to remove garbage at the end of the day


Allenby and HaCarmel


Goodnight Shuk HaCarmel
