Machane Yehuda Market in Jerusalem

The Machane Yehuda Market in Jerusalem is an icon in Israel and one of the most vibrant and exciting markets I have ever visited. It has a long history dating back to the Ottoman period, but todays space is more modern while still holding onto an old-world appeal. When the stalls shut down, it turns into the hottest venue in Jerusalem’s night life, with bars, restaurants and live music venues taking over the space.

I have just got back from the most amazing food tour to Israel and if you follow me on Instagram you would have seen all the delicious food pics I have been posting under the #VibeFood hashtag. I was invited by Vibe Israel along with 5 other international digital influencers to experience the best that the Israeli culinary scene has to offer. In short I was blown away, and I can’t wait to tell a few stories about my trip. I’m also planning to share amazing recipes, so brace yourself for some Middle Eastern flavours. In the meantime I loved the Machane Yehuda market so much and stayed on in Jerusalem for 3 nights after the tour ended so I could get a proper dose of it. I obviously took hundreds of pictures, so this is my visual story of the market, a must-do place to visit in Israel. I can’t adequately express how much I loved taking these images and sharing  them with you here

    Wonderful photographs, so explicit!

    Fabulous photos of Machane Yehuda!! My husband was an international banker and I, at times, accompanied him on his trips. Machane Yehuda looks very, very much like the souks I’ve visited in Arabic countries. And the photo of a street scene showing a blue door on the left made me miss Malta – where we lived for eight years – because the doors in older homes look exactly like it, including the half circle at the top. What an experience you had. Am I jealous – hell yes!! ; o )

    Wow! Just WOW. I originally hail from Johannesburg but now live just north of Tel Aviv. The markets I regularly frequent are much like Machane Yehuda, but it’s only through your beautiful images, that I realise just how unique an experience this is. Thank you for so beautifully capturing my world. Hurry back!
