The Sights and Flavors of Shuk Carmel…

Shuk Carmel (Carmel Marketplace) is located a few blocks from Tel Aviv’s beach area on the Mediterranean. From several directions you enter this “gigantic, throbbing, open-air food-plus-everything-else market” where vendors hawk everything from pistachios and guavas to sun hats and memorial candles on open tables lining the many shopping streets.  The market runs into side streets, large and small, one side favoring dry goods and the other dried beans, fruit, nuts, and spices in all colors and fragrances, sold from sacks.
