  • A vibrant market located in Jerusalem, Israel. What is particularly memorable is its art. The place incorporates many arts, which visually appeal to people. There are also various kinds of shops, including fruit stores, coffee shops, and restaurants. The contrast of colors, in addition, is memorable. We had a nice local Israeli food in a traditional restaurant along the street. Highly recommended for anyone visiting the area.
