NileGuide Expert tip:
Quietest time to visit the market is Sunday morning. To see the real action, try Fridays. Parking is very limited.
Jerusalem's central and very colorful outdoor produce and food market, where it seems that the whole city is shopping on a Friday or eve of holiday. Great prices; ultra-fresh produce, fish, meat, fabulous spices and baked goods and even a smattering of chic fashion boutiques. The aroma of Middle Eastern Jewish food will draw you to some of the best hole-in-the-wall restaurants. Fresh juice stands and cafes are easy to find. There's even a little synagogue tucked away in one of the market alleys where you can join the merchants for afternoon prayers.
