    Do visit and enjoy the culinary delights of the city
    I visited the place as part of a city tour and we ate a lot of things here. Any food you try here will not be wrong and it was such a delight. Prepare to spend at least an hour here and watch your belongings. It is a typical market with its usual crowds.

    Local market with lots of choices for tourists
    Carmel Market is near the hotel I stayed. It is walking distance to the beach too. It is a regular local market where you can find clothing, fruit, vegetable, candies, snack, spices, pastries, souvenir etc. There are also lots of food vendors. Price is reasonable, The market was quite crowded when we were there on a weekday late afternoon.

    Worth visiting this vibrant market
    We walked from our hotel in northern beach side of Tel Aviv to Carmel market in the morning. It was a pleasant walk though it became hot on the way back . Carmel is the largest market, or shuk, in Tel Aviv. It’s a vibrant marketplace where traders sell everything from clothing to spices, and fruit to electronics. The hustle and bustle, colour of fruits, vegetables and spices, vibrant noises, and its reputation as the largest shuk in Tel Aviv all combine to make it a worthwhile experience. It is worthwhile to visit even though it is not spread out or as exciting to visit as in Jerusalem’s main market, Machane Yehuda.

    Best coffee shop breakfast
    Best breakfast ever in this hole in a wall at Carmel Market. 20 Beans coffee shop. Open saturdays too. Must try the Tree Testicle Sandwich (avocado) and cappuccinos are a work of art here.

    Tel Aviv Beach is Awesome
    Tel Aviv Beach’s vibrant scene is a beauty to behold and participate in. Party at the beach all day into the night with after the sun going down movement to the well lit beach walk. People constantly exercising, playing beach paddle ball, beach soccer, jogging, walking with guitar players coming once the sun comes down. Total revelry in a beautiful safe environment. Tel Aviv Beach scene is just awesome!

A bustling Tel Aviv pedestrian market with great produce, food stalls, etc. If you are staying in an apartment (as opposed to a hotel), this is where you should do your food shopping for meals,

This market is lovely with all the sights and smells but personally I preferred Levinski St market. The smells are amazing, the food cheaper and there are deals to be had in the bakery light a coffee and small pastry for 25Shekles ...
It en route up to the bus station too if your heading that way so well worth wandering through.

Highly overrated 'culinary' treats from crooks who increase price after you handed over Falafels to your kids.
The food stand in the middle of the market is led by a copious guy who sells Shawarma and Falafels (Pita or Flatbread). This Friday late afternoon I was there with the family. The stand owner told me that the Falafel in Pita is ILS 18 and in the Flatbread ILS 20. After your kids take the Falafels, he suddenly claims ILS 28 for the Flatbread and starts yelling when you kindly ask what type of inflation rate he is applying here.
Regarding the Falafels itself; it is edible but not very enjoyable because of the high amount of salt

Very sad that all the prejudices that one can have about this place came true.

This place gets super busy, so can be a bit of a bunfight! It officially opens at 09:00 but if you go after 08:00 pretty much everything is set up and you can get what you want without having to fight your way through the crowds. Great place, awesome atmosphere

Really crowded and is more a vegetable market, not a usual bazzar. Lots of places to eat there, but also very crowded. If you want to visit a bazar try Jafa flee market.

We arrived waking from the Bauhaus area and and we dived into the very lively Carmel Market. Here you will find everything, from spices to clothes and much appreciated by us orange and pomegranate freshly squeezed juice.

For the life of me I cannot see the attraction to this incredibly crowded market. People were walking obliviously and carelessly and were clogging the walking lanes of this uninspired shuk, which I think means "sucks" in Hebrew. You couldn't pay me to go back to this place.
