flea-market-jaffaJaffa’s Flea Market (in Hebrew: Shuk Hapishpishim) is a must for anyone visiting Tel Aviv.

Set behind picturesque Jaffa, just south of Tel-Aviv, the flea market is in a dense net of alleys, offering a colorful variety of new and used goods, modern and vintage. It also provides a great selection of authentic, ethnic, and eclectic food experiences.

What to Shop

The flee market offers a wide range of goods, from Industrial kitchenware to vintage furniture and trendy jewelry to art galleries to old vinyl records. Every alley in the market has its character waiting to be revealed. Just don’t forget to haggle when shopping! This is the Middle East, after all.

What to Eat

flea-market-jaffaA good selection of eateries can be found throughout the market. Near the clocktower, the iconic Dr. Shakshuka offers the best shakshuka and Lybian food ever. At the other end of the market, Raisa provides a great combination of Western and Levantine dishes, and its neighboring Café Puaa is a perfect spot for a break from all the excessive retailing therapy. Italkia Bapishpishim is an excellent place for non-kosher Italian food (shrimp dishes, yeh!), and Golda or Dr. Leck is the best Ice Cream to end the day.

When to Visit

The Flea Market is open Sunday to Thursday and Friday up to 15:00. The bars and restaurants take over at night, creating a quaint, atmospheric space ideal for a nice dinner and socializing. During the day, Friday is the best time to visit, as many locals shop and hang out in the market before the Sabbath. Live Greek music and dancing next to vendors offering second-hand goods is a sight not to be missed!

A Flea Market and Jaffa tour can be combined with a guided day tour to Jaffa and Tel Aviv.
