The famous market in Israel, probably the best. With a perfect mixture of stores, restaurants, atmosphere. Also fits for any kind of weather. Just take in consideration that arriving by private car would turn things a little bit complicated

I have been drinking the fruit tea which I bought there since. There's also a great wine dealer on the market. Colorful swirl at all times.

You can spend days there and find an atmosphere, amazing aromas and flavors every time anew. The people, the food and the variety. During the day the market is packed and amazing and at night it becomes a recreation and music center.
