This block-long alleyway market becomes a blur of brilliant primary colors as the city's best-quality fruit and vegetables, pickles and cheeses, fresh fish and poultry, confections, and falafel await inspection. The busiest days are Thursday and Friday, when Jews shop for the Sabbath; the market is closed on Saturday, along with the rest of Jewish West Jerusalem. Combine your visit with a meal at one of the many Middle Eastern restaurants in the neighborhood or grab a
cup of excellent coffee at a Western-style café. Before you fill your baskets and bags, stop in at the wonderful boutiques and shops scattered throughout the market. On summer evenings, there's also live music.
