Tel Aviv’s Carmel Market is “the” place to go for everything from souvenirs to cutting-edge café cuisine.

This is where the top chefs of the city’s eateries come to purchase raw ingredients, including Israeli staples such as bountiful varieties of fresh herbs, chickpeas, cheeses, olives and eggplant.

For those who’d rather munch as they browse, the Carmel Market also offers lots of freshly made regional delicacies including flatbread, humus and falafel.
