The Second Day – Carmel Market (Tel Aviv)

We went for lunch at the Carmel Market.

It sells everything.

the triangular one in the middle claimed to be baklava, but it doesn’t look like any baklava I’ve ever seen in the Foodland bakery section

For 15 shekels (about $5), you can have juice squeezed.

squeezing pomegranate juice – this is the sort of machine we have for squeezing orange juice at breakfast

I bought a cup of pomegranate for 10 shekels (about $3.50).

We were plied with halva samples a couple of times along the main stretch, as well.

I heard a lot of tourist accents (by which I mean, American – and I don’t just mean the American-esque accents a lot of the locals seem to have in English, but proper American-when-talking-to-each-other accents). But there still seemed to be a lot of locals there.

We stopped to rest and eat near the top entrance of the market.


As we were leaving, we saw this slightly overloaded car outside a florist:

    I love the Turkish Delight stall!
    Going to markets is one of my favourite things to do when traveling. I love how all the displays are colourful and so neatly arranged.

      I had no idea there were so many colours of Turkish delight! Although I knew it came sometimes with bits in. I’d like to get some of the nutty Turkish delight at some point.

    Wow. The is a lot of lollies. The market seems to have a lot larger range than Central Market does here.

  3. Ruth Hay says:

    Wow, that is a lot of things to take in all at the same time.

    I suppose when there’s that much produce etc at the markets they have to fill their cars to the very brim!
    This time I’ll be showing Emily the lolly photos 🙂
