Just north of Tel Aviv's spectacular beach boardwalk is the port - home to restaurants, cafes, shopping, and gelato. The main draw though, is the bustling food market. Inside building 12 you'll find a number of fresh fruit and vegetable stands and also booths dedicated to cheese, meat, fish, olive oil, chocolate, halva, wine, freshly squeezed fruit juice, the Lehamim bakery and even one for cookware.Other popular booths serve homemade pasta and smoked meat sandwiches and don't forget to stop by Sherry Herring's that specializes in open faced herring and salmon sandwiches. There are 2 restaurants - a tapas bar and the Kitchen Market (more on those to come).
On Friday's, the market expands outside on both sides of building 12, with more venders selling everything from nuts and jams, to flowers and perfect challah for shabbat.
