About Nahalat Binyamin
Regular craft markets (every tuesday and friday) open up across the wide pathways, spilling out from the vibrant Shuk HaCarmel. Pottery, paintings and carvings halo each eclectic bauhaus building as the sun warms the ground underneath you.
This iconic street became a front for artists from all over Israel in 1987. A small collective of artists and creators began selling their crafts from Nahalat Binyamin street, which has since evolved and grown into the extraordinary marvel that it is today.
Over 200 artists flock to Nahalat Binyamin twice a week, attracting thousands of shoppers with each day they are there.
On the surface, this authentic craft market may seem crowded, but the Nahalat Binyamin committee ensure strict quality controls are met before anyone can sell on the streets. You can be assured that what you buy will not only be 100% original, but also of an outstanding quality – something to be proud of.
A History of Nahalat Binyamin Street
The street was founded in 1909; Jewish families founded the original Ahuzat Bayit, which has since become the thriving market of Nahalat Binyamin street.
The creatives of the Old City were inspired to create their own neighbourhood, and pieced together the Nahalat Binyamin association. Complete with shopkeepers, craftsmen, bakers and workers, they began to build and develop in Tel Aviv.
It was 1914 when the very first houses were built. The association had acquired a small dirt road, which they had named Nahalat Binyamin.
Over the course of time, this grew into the network that it is today. An array of incredible houses and unique architecture now overlooks the busy streets, all in different styles that really display the culture and togetherness of Tel Aviv.
The Palm Tree house was built by a renowned jewish sculptor, Y.Z. Tabachnik,in 1922. It is a beautiful example of traditional Jewish architecture and stands tall in the heart of Nahalat Binyamin.
It now operates as a 5* hotel, offering truly luxurious short term rentals. It is a wonderful place to sit and watch the crowds, listening to the gentle hum of the market below you.
