Jerusalem Old City Market
Old City Market of Jerusalem
#About the Market in the Old City of Jerusalem

This was once the largest market in Israel, and among the largest in the Middle East. Today, however, the Old City Market of Jerusalem is the most colorful, impressive and Eastern market in Israel.

The market is spread over many long alleyways, that cross the Old City and crisscross through the different Quarters of the Old City - The Christian Quarter, Muslim Quarter, and the Armenian Quarter.

The market has different areas, some are more tourist-oriented, while others are more for the local residents. Each market sells the typical market products. There are souvenirs, Eastern products, and in the touristy sections, more fruits and vegetables, different food stalls, clothes, furniture, phones, and electronics.

#The Market's History

It may be hard to believe that today's market maintains the system of streets that used to be here during the Roman and Byzantine periods. The two market walkways are based on ancient streets from the past -the north-western half of the market is based on the Roman route, while the other half, the north-south axis, is based on the Cardo, the main street of Byzantine Jerusalem, which crossed the city from Damascus Gate to the Zion Gate.

The Queen of Jerusalem during the Crusader period, the Queen Melizende, made big changes in the market's structure, when she divided the Cardo into three thin and parallel markets. The Queen also added stylish roofing over the entire market.

Since Jerusalem has be reunited with the Old City in the Six Day War of 1967, the market was renovated and modernized a few times. It was tiled, painted, shop doors painted over in blues and greens, and the overhead arches were reinforced.

If in previous centuries pilgrims reported in their writings about very bad smells and harsh hygiene in the Jerusalem market, today's market is clean and almost completely odor free.

Mahane Yehuda Market
#About the Market that Lives During the Day and Comes to Life at Night

Mahane Yehuda Market is the largest market in Jerusalem. It mainly sells food and clothing, fresh vegetables and fruits, meats, cheeses, spices, pastries and delicacies.

Over the years, the colorful market has been widely publicized as a magnet for politicians and protesters of national politics, as well as being a stronghold of Beitar Jerusalem soccer fans.

Once this market was a daytime market, but the night of Mahaneh Yehuda Market has become popular as well. Today's popular falafel stands and popular restaurants are joined by quality chef restaurants, lively bars and cozy cafés. Young people have made it the center of Jerusalem's nightlife and its pleasant atmosphere in the evenings attracts many from around the city and surrounding communities.

#How Was the Market Born?

It seems that the Mahane Yehuda Market was born on its own. This happened towards the end of the Ottoman period in Jerusalem. The years were at the end of the 19th century, when many of the Arab villages around Jerusalem, such as Lifta, Deir Yassin and others, began to sell their agricultural produce here, on Jaffa Road, near the Mahaneh Yehuda neighborhood. They took advantage of a large vacant lot belonging to affluent families from Jerusalem, in order to sell their products to the nearby residents of Nachlaot neighborhood and passers-by. The improvised market succeeded immediately, mainly because it saved the Nachlaot residents from shopping in the distant Old City markets.

The market had no infrastructure at all, but gradually the village sellers began to add wooden sheds and stalls, and over time built permanent structures made of tin and wood. The name of the market, which was originally called "Valero Market", after the owner of the lot it was all built on, later became the Mahane Yehuda Market, after the adjacent neighborhood.

Carmel Market
#About the Most Popular Tel Aviv Market

Tourists, shouting vendors, hipsters in sunglasses and striped shirts, and tourists stunned by the variety of colorful vegetables and fruits - all these and many others gather every day in the most colorful and exciting market in Tel Aviv.

The Carmel Market is the most famous market in Tel Aviv and has become one of the largest food centers in Tel Aviv in recent years. It is a bustling market, colorful, fragrant, boisterous and full of good and Mediterranean energies. In recent years it has been filling up with excellent street food stalls, small and high quality restaurants, young hummus bars and stalls with special ethnic food products.

Today the market operates 6 days a week and you will find a variety of stores - food, clothing, home accessories, flowers, sweets, restaurants, delis and more.

#Market History

During the 1920's Russian Jewish merchants came to Israel who bought land in Tel Aviv for 1,000 rubles. They thought less about immigrating to Israel and living in these houses, but more about their children and the land they could bequeath to them. After the Bolshevik revolution took place in Russia in 1917, they had no choice but to travel to Israel. They had no property except the lots they had bought.

In addition to the economic difficulties, they also failed to integrate into the local labor market and therefore opened a small market in the Kerem Hatemanim area - "Hakerem". The purpose of the market was to provide work in trade in fruits and vegetables. Meir Dizengoff, who was mayor at the time, made the place official and in 1920 and called it "Carmel Market." At that time the market was well developed and contained fish and poultry stalls, fruit, vegetables and pastries.

The Arab merchants of Jaffa, who discovered the success of the local market, established a competitive market that was no less good than the original - a large, colorful, and lively market. Quite a few cases of violence occurred in the wake of the successful market competition, which somewhat clouded the local idyll.

Damnoen Saduak Floating Market
#About Bangkok's Famous Floating Market

Many around the world are familiar with the famous photos of wooden boats, full of fruits and vegetables, with women selling merchandise, wearing straw circular hats. Here, early in the morning, dozens of vendors arrive to sell their merchandise on small boats, as they wear dark clothes, and on their heads traditional straw hats, showing off their products.

Floating markets are definitely an impressive sight, they are fun to visit, as well as to take photos. Almost all tourists who arrive in Thailand visit a floating market, mostly for the first time in their lives.

In the canal system that surrounds Bangkok, there are a few floating markets, or by their Thai names, Thalat Nam. These markets are usually very colorful, full of life, have great energies, and delicious fruits and vegetables that are grown close by.

The most famous floating market in Thailand and maybe the world is the Damnoen Saduak. Although it is one market or many in Thailand, it is an all-time tourist favorite. Here you can walk on foot near the boats, or ride on a canoe between the boats filled with fruits and food. From the boats you can smell, taste, buy, and enjoy tastes and scenes that will never end - all while riding in a relaxing canoe. This is a real Thai experience.

The market is located about 100 kilometers south of the center of Bangkok. The way here is a nice ride through rural Thailand, very different than the urban capital.

#History of the Market

The Damnoen Saduak Market is located in an area full of canals dug by local villages in 1866. Digging these canals was done by direct order of King Rama IV, who was advised to connect the two large rivers in the area.

There are about 200 canals, that were a big part of carrying the water. On these canals are a few floating markets, only some of these are for outsiders, but most are for residents of certain villages.

If you rent a boat in the market, try going to one of the side canals in the area. This way you can discover the special lifestyle of the residents who leave near the water. If before you saw the wonderful agricultural produce, here you can see the origins of what is sold in the markets, and how they are grown in such fertile soil.


Come here early - if you arrive before 10:00 am, you won't suffer from the massive amounts of tourists that come here.

Bargain, vendors here mean business. Prices here are usually higher, for the tourists. If you couldn't get the price you wanted, move on to another stall.

Mercado de La Boqueria
#About Barcelona's Amazing Food Market

This market is a name in all of Europe and one of the most pleasant and varied food markets in the world. One of the most colorful spots in Barcelona is the Mercado de La Boqueria. Foods, colors, spices, fruits, vegetables, drinks, shakes and sweets - all you can find here. The market is out of Rambla Avenue and has been here for centuries. The La Boqueria is covered and its ceiling is inspired. After a five-minute walk from the entrance to the market you can see the artwork of Joan Miró that is also there.

In the past, there was a monastery called St. Joseph. Back in the 12th century, the market began as a meeting place for butchers, who sold pigs near the monastery. Only in the 19th century did the place begin to receive its status as a market where Barcelona's farmers and fishermen concentrated. In those years, the monastery was also destroyed by a popular anarchist disturbance.

If we are used to thinking of a market as a crowded, noisy, not very clean and messy place, La Boqueria Market represents the opposite - a clean and orderly market that conducts a cooking seminar and a gastronomic school.

However, the magic of the regular market is kept here. The smell of food, the crowded stalls, the abundance of products and the bustle of merchants. Here you will find tempting fruit stalls offering ready dishes of cut and washed fruits, freshly squeezed fruit juices in colored glasses, candy stands, dried fruits, fish and seafood, coffee, chocolate, wines and more. You can also see here slightly less aesthetic stalls, some with heads and legs of a pig, hanging game meat, worms for cooking, insects for eating and more.

In the market La Boqueria there are places where you can sit and have lunch, with many flavors and a variety of kitchens and cooking styles. This market has won many awards and has already been picked more than once as the best food market around the world. What do you say? Should we go tasting?

#About the Fun Flea Market of Barcelona

Love to rummage? - You've come to the right place. If you brought another suitcase for what you purchase here, there is a chance that a few hours of digging and digging at the stalls will give you an excellent supply of clothes and bargains at equal prices!

The truth is, you can find everything here, old or new, new or modern.

In the market you will find furniture, appliances, clothes, books and antiques.

Saturdays are of course the busiest. If you arrive here in the middle of the week, try to arrive before 3:00 pm, as the sellers are going to the Spanish Siesta, the famous Spanish afternoon nap.

If you can get up at 7:00 am, there are antique auctions. At 12:00 pm there was another round, when all the unsold items were offered at lower prices. Next to the market there is also a large hall, where many types of furniture are offered for sale. Worth a look!
