Mahane Yehuda Market

Mahane Yehuda is the largest outdoor market in Jerusalem. It takes up a whole small neighborhood, between Yafo and Aggripas, and is at the heart of a much large shopping complex which stretches up Yafo towards the Old City or up Aggripas, over King George and into the Ben Yehuda triangle.Mahane Yehuda (pronounced Machne) is as much a place to be as a place to shop. While the prices are about as reasonable as you can find in Jerusalem, it depends on the time of day and week, not to mention the season for produce. Prices are marked with chalk on blackboards stuck in amongst the produce, and what sells for 6 IS a kilo on Monday morning may be down to 2 IS before the trumpet sounds Friday afternoon for Shabbat.
