Cultural experience: Jaffa Flea Market, where one can find everything + GALLERY!
OHMYGOSSIP — Flea markets are worth visiting, you’ll get a great cultural experience, see local arts and crafts and probably this is the place where you buy some souvenirs to take back home with you. Don’t forget to haggle for your purchases!
Jaffa Flea Market is open Sunday to Thursday 10am to 6pm and Friday 10am to 2pm. If your time is limited in Tel Aviv, the Jaffa area is very interesting to visit — not so much as a shopping area but as the place to get some ‘cultural experiences’. If you are all about ‘heavy brand clothes shopping’, I suggest to visit the Dizengoff Center instead! 😛
Jaffa Flea marketplace is filled daily with tourists and locals alike, all seeking the perfect (bargained for) purchase that captures the charm and magic of this unique shuk. Flea Market runs across the streets of Olei Zion, Yehuda Margoza, Beit Eshel and the alleyways connecting them.
Jaffa is the ancient port out of which modern day Tel Aviv has grown. Just next to Jaffa’s picturesque Old City and ancient Clock Tower, is a treasure trove of antiques, handmade and secondhand items over at the Jaffa Flea Market, or, in Hebrew Shuk Hapishpishim.
?❤? My favourite shop in Flea Market! So much nice stuff with so good prices!
Jaffa’s Shuk HaPishpushim, or Flea Market, is an outdoor secondhand and antique shopping area. Founded in the early part of the 20th century, the Jaffa Flea Market has, in recent years, become a trendy spot for fashionistas, artisans and lovers of all things old or handmade. Today’s sprawling streets and central market area are an eclectic mix of indoor restaurants, stop by eateries, outdoor junk vendors, and shops with refurbished furniture, household items from earlier periods, and second hand clothes.
