When it comes to food market tourism, there would be little to parallel Tel Aviv's Levinsky Market that captures the character and spirit of the city like few things do. Started in the 1920s primarily by Jewish immigrants from Greece (and later, Turkey, Balkans and other places) as a spice market as well as herbal products, the place soon turned, with the influx— especially after 1948—of people of many ethnicities, into a full-fledged marketplace with all sorts of restaurants and food shops.
The nuts and spice stalls are still there in abundance, but so are all sorts of food wares such as Persian dried lemon, Greek olives, Turkish cheeses and what have you! In short, an epicure's paradise and a pilgrimage for all wannabe cooks and lovers of ethnic cuisine. So, while in Tel Aviv, make sure to pay a visit to Levinsky since perhaps no other place epitomizes the diversity of cultures that Tel Aviv is as Levinsky does.Places nearby:
