Fwd: we finally made it to Tel Aviv! everyone the whole trip was dying to go because everyone’s heard such great things. after the vegetable farm we were at, we were dropped off at this market in tel aviv to do a quick shopping trip and stuff our faces with whatever we could find. we really didn’t have enough time to do everything! we walked down the market street and saw beautiful pieces from these artists. we went to the paralell street, which has more touristy/cheaper things. by the time we had to grab food, i didn’t have time to go back and get the things i wanted! oh well. there’s always the next time.
Located at the Yemenite Quarter, one of the city’s first neighborhoods, Nachalat Binyamin Pedestrian Mall is a colorful open-air bazaar of unique handicrafts, street performances, pantomime and musicians. Twice a week, on Tuesday and Friday, the pedestrianized restored street, which is parallel to the Carmel Market, gets full of tourists and Israelis alike, who wander among the stands, sit at the fashionable outdoor cafes, and simply share the lively atmosphere that is all around.
my favorites here are the pomegranates and the huge store of fabric.
