Mahane Yehuda Market Jerusalem

 

We embark on a tantalizing tasting tour of Jerusalem's Mahane Yehuda Market on this delectable small connection. The market dates back to the Ottoman period where the large open space was used by locals to sell their produce. It grew quickly and over the years has dramatically transformed into what it is today.

The bustling market is a dazzling array of the senses with more than 250 vendors selling a range of produce and goods - from meat, fruit, baked goods, and spices to flowers, clothes, art and much more.

One of the first stops during our time in Jerusalem, we get to know one of the city's most popular attractions for visitors and locals alike during this small connection. A guided walking tour through the market will take our taste buds on a journey as we taste our way through the variety of foods on offer. We also connect with the local vendors, learning about their produce and gaining insight into the diverse food culture of Israel in what is a fitting welcome to Jerusalem. One of three small connections during our Israel small group tour, get ready for a sensory overload at the Mahane Yehuda Market.
