Fodor's Review

The first section of Carmel Market (commonly referred to as the shuk) consists of cheap clothing, but continue farther down to the fruit and vegetable section, where the real show begins. Vendors loudly hawk their fresh produce, and the crowded aisles reveal Israel's incredible ethnic mix. Don't pass by the small side streets filled with unusual treats. The market is the most fun on Tuesday or Friday, when it can be combined with a visit to the Nahalat Binyamin

Pedestrian Mall's crafts fair.

Great place to see locals - both Jews and Arabs shop here

My son and I are photographers, and we adored the market, where everything, but especially fresh vegetables, fish, meat and baked goods are on sale from the many stalls. You will lament the limited capacity of your stomach but glory in the unlimited capacity of your eyes. You will be blown away by the variety of produce and its quality. Interaction between patrons and merchants, and among the many customers, suggest this is as much a meeting spot

as a market. Enjoy!
