Shopping in the local market

The main upside to doing a short-term apartment rental when on holiday – you get to experience a city like a local. From just getting out and about to getting groceries, it’s jsut so different from staying in a hotel.

So, the first thing we had to do when arriving in Jerusalem was to hit the stores for something to eat and drink. We tried a local supermarket, but it wasn’t working for us, so a few inquiries had us on our way, and we found an astonishing indoor market selling all kinds of things we felt like eating. Halva, dates, cheese, pastries and sweets all looked so tempting. We settled for cheese and dates, and we’re glad we did. But, it’s a place that locals go to for their daily shop, with many coming after a day’s work to get stuff for dinner. A good cup of coffee, and we were on our way back home.
