Carmel Market Tour

What to Expect

This tasting tour introduces guests to the heartbeat of Israel's modern city—in the stalls of the city's largest open air market, the Carmel Market (Shuk HaCarmel in Hebrew).

Diving into the depths of the Carmel Market and the backstreets of its neighboring historic Yemenite quarter, we learn about the development of Israeli cuisine through the country's history and how four generations of vendors are able to maintain their shops after almost 100 years.

We will hear stories from vendors whose families were the first in the market to new shops revitalizing the hip neighborhood. Our 6+ tastings will include some of the country's freshest hummus, street food, produce, baked goods and Yemenite cuisine.
