Mahane Yehuda Market

In the heart of a neighborhood in downtown Jerusalem, the largest open market in Israel was built in 1928, between Mahane Yehuda and Etz Haim Streets. Here you can find everything from housewares to clothes, but mainly fresh food of every sort: fruits and vegetables, fish and poultry, bread and baked goods, inexpensive restaurants to suit every palate.

Walking through the market’s alleyways has always been a good opportunity to meet Jerusalem and its fascinating human mosaic. Wandering among the stalls you will find the city’s old-timers, young students, ultra-Orthodox and secular, Arabs and Jews. Recently the cafes have extended their opening hours to beyond sunset, when the market stalls close.
