Mahane Yehuda Market

Mahane Yehuda Market is one of those places that if you stand in one place long enough, you’ll see the town pass by. At least, while you’re standing there, I’m pretty certain you won’t go hungry or thirsty. Fruit, nuts, hummus, halva, freshly squeezed juice, coffee and cheese will keep you satisfied.

It’s also known as ‘The Shuk’, and while not very large, there’s a lot crammed in there. It’s covered, so even in the heat of the day, it’s shady coolness is inviting. The roller doors of each of the stores are graffiti’d with the most amazing murals. Often, the mural will depict what the store sells; the roller door with a main fishing will be the fish shop. Naturally, if you’re looking at the mural, the store will be closed, and while it’s open, you can see what they’re selling. Even the trash bins are decorated. It’s a sight to behold and quite a lovely one.
