A market that draws thousands of visitors each week, and provides a fun experience for kids and adults.
Located in the heart of Tel Aviv, the Nahalat Binyamin outdoor pedestrian mall can rightfully be called the 'pulse' of Tel Aviv. On Tuesdays and Fridays, hundred of stalls line both sides of the street and artsy vendors hawk everything from hand carved cigarettes boxes and Elvis Presley cuckoo-clocks to handmade silver jewelry and paintings of ancient Palestine. Dozens of cafés jostle for space along the swerving shady walkways.
After downing a jolt of Arabic coffee or sampling a plate of labaneh (yogurt cheese) and za-atar inside a large pita bread, be sure to check out the fire-throwing jugglers who always draw a large, enthusiastic crowd. Situated one block over from the colorful Carmel Souk (a massive fruit and vegetable market), and one congested street across from trendy Sheinkin Street, Nahalat Binyamin should not be missed.
