Jaffa Flea Market, Tel Aviv (must see)

At Jaffa Flea Market, the early bird gets the greatest deals. Particularly on Sundays, if you happen to be the first customer, you will get goods at affordable prices from sellers who wish to start a sale that will bring luck through the week.

At this market, you can find an array of mixed treasures and trinkets. You can browse through interesting collections of brass, copper, jewelry, Persian tiles, old family albums, Judaica items and even used clothes.

Jaffa Flea Market is all about bargaining, so hone up your bargaining skills or at least bring along someone who knows how to haggle with merchants. If you do not master the language, use your wonderful two hands to get understood.

Located close to the Clock Tower, the market is named after old clothes crawling with fleas, previously sold here. After the area was renovated a few years back, there has been a complete transformation in terms of ambience and atmosphere. Today you can find a range of great quaint/trendy restaurants, coffee shops and art galleries that attract younger crowds, and you may even attend some cultural events for no charge. The vibrant and lively narrow lanes of this market have always been popular with tourists and on the afternoon hours, the whole area is packed full of bars!

Why You Should Visit:
A combination of trendy coffee shops, antique shops and open-air second-hand stores that attract a variety of people – young hipsters, couples, families, and odd people.
