Jaffa flea market (Shuk Hapishpishim) in Tel Aviv is a flea market where various objects, clothes, and furniture items, new and used, are sold. The market is located just outside old town Jaffa. As a private tour guide in Israel, I love taking my guests to check out the market is super fun and different. Besides the area has a great vibe and even though you’re not a shopper, still there is lots to see there and enjoy the atmosphere!



More About Jaffa flea market (Shuk Hapishpishim)

This port-side neighborhood of alleyways, covered walkways, and outdoor verandas has been operating for more than 100 years across the same sprawling streets. The emblematic mirrored canopy houses many stalls; a mixture of junk shop, antique fair, jumble sale, and old school market all rolled into one. Furthermore, it’s open six days a week, from Sunday through Friday; from morning through early evening hours; this is where to go for finding those unique, one-of-a-kind items from long ago.
