The largest market in Tel Aviv, Shuk HaCarmel (or Carmel Market) is a sprawling and genuine market place in the centre of the bustling city. A vast array of goods from fruit to art overlooks the crowded streets, and the aroma of cooking spices fills the air above.

What is Carmel Market

A massive marketplace bordering Allenby Street and Magen David square, opening across an expanse of tents and stalls all with something original and unique to offer. Handcrafted pieces of art, fresh homegrown fruit and veg and exotic spices that wouldn’t be out of place in a top London restaurant, a more fitting question might be what isn’t Carmel Market?

A place for traders to sell their many wares, the Shuk, or market, can be an overwhelming place. Amongst the many faces and canvases that line the horizon though, there are many wonderful things to be enjoyed.

The market is open every day of the week apart from Sunday, so there will always be time to have a look around. Open from the early hours of the morning and closing at around 7pm, you can roam freely to take in the scent of the flowers blooming as they’re being sold to tourists and locals alike.

Arts and Crafts at Carmel Market

Nothing displays the cultural significance of Carmel Market more than the paintings and sculptures displayed along Nahalat Binyamin street.

Tuesdays and Fridays are exciting days at the Shuk, with independent artists setting up shop to show their fabulous hand-made paintings, drawings, sculptures and jewelry, with plenty of tourists to stand by and admire them.

You can take a piece of Tel Aviv home with you, with unique piece of handmade art – perhaps a stunning hand-crafted necklace, or a one of a kind painting you can display at your home. Many of the wares here also make fantastic gifts!


An important part of the Carmel Market is the many food vendors that showcase their fabulous products, which could put even Camden Market to shame. From authentic street food and local delights to home comfort foods such as burgers, chips and steak, there’s plenty of choice, and no one will judge if you want to go back for more!
