I’m a little obsessed with food markets and when I travel they tend to be a highlight for me. The Mehane Yehudi Market in Jerusalem is one of the most exciting I have ever visited and steeped in tradition dating back to the Ottoman Empire. The Sarona Market on the other hand is a very new market and build in a modern complex in the business district of Tel Aviv. It’s a gourmet and consumer product market with every kind of delicious food imaginable. You will find boutique craft beers – even one made from chickpeas, French champagne, seafood from the Mediterranean, fruit and vegetables from all over Israel and delicious halva and pastries. Its a lifestyle market with many kitchen counter restaurants to eat at. The inspiration for the market comes from the leading markets worldwide, such as Borough Market in London, Chelsea Market in New York, La Boqueria in Barcelona, and the global Eataly chain of markets, and its a must-visit place for anyone interested in food and eating in Tel Aviv.
