We took the bus from Jerusalem. Six shekels gets you there. spices, cafés, fruit and veg for tourists and locals alike. You will be asked to look at every step. Be polite if you feel overwhelmed, it works wonders.

The Mahane Yehuda (or: Machane Yehuda) market in Jerusalem is easily the best covered market I have seen in the Middle East and beyond. Great offer of high quality foodstuffs and great atmosphere. In particular quite a few craft beer cafees, we went to the Beer Bazaar and it was excellent.

We heard from multiple people to make sure to come here and we were glad we did. It was super fun and had good prices. Wonderful variety of products ranging from traditional pastries, fruits and veggies, nuts, olive oil etc to more contemporary treats like macarons, fish and chips, etc. I'm sure there were other tourists there but it was...

We've been living next to the market for about three weeks now. It's been one of our favorite places during our stay here in Israel. The open air market, dating back to the 1930s I believe, is a fun place for the kids to explore and try all sorts of fun foods i'll experiencing the culture. We even had someone... More

Great place to browse, fresh fruits, nuts, flowers, spices. A sense of a cross section of Israel at if you like falafel the store sons of Levi at the uphill end has the best falafel I have had. Fresh as I am not the only one that likes their food, entertaining and delicious

Fun shopping area to walk thru. Lots of small shops offering a variety of goods/foods. Haggling is expected in most places.

We had a taste tour of the Macheneh Yehudah Market. In addition to getting an historical review of the market and the various cultural groups that comprise the stall keepers, bakeries, spice shops and restaurants, we were able to taste different foods from the varied cultures (Yemenite, Moroccan, Iraqi, Kurdish and Syrian were some of the cultures). It was an... More

We really enjoy markets and try to visit at least one in every country we go. Mahane Yehuda is great! Clean, colorful and vibrant. Vendors are friendly and we tried samples of all kinds of food. Please buy some halva there - sweet made of tahini. Delicious! They also have a synagogue in the market which we thought was interesting.... More

If you're looking for a very different experience at the market, I highly recommend a visit there on Saturday morning. Yes, all the stands and shops will be closed but this is a great time to explore the beautiful murals that have been painted on all the security gates. They are really something to see-Gandhi, Spielberg, Golda Meir, Einstein and... More
