Plunge into the crowds and the burly-burly and enjoy!
A typical market, great for getting lost in.
Though Tel Aviv was founded only in 1909, visiting the Carmel Market is sure to evoke the Middle East of centuries past. This is probably the city's most diverse and colourful spot, a riot of hues, cacophony of shouting merchants and customers, and above all an olfactory symphony of aromas characteristic of Israeli cookery, for which this is reputedly the best source of ingredients around. It centres around Magen David Square in the heart of the city and continues down toward the seashore. Take your time and let yourself go with the ebb and flow of the locals, living an experience that's pure, delightful urban Israel.
