Nahalat Binyamin Market

Art & Crafts in Tel Aviv

Situated in one of the oldest districts in Tel Aviv; Nahalat Binyamin Market is the largest arts and crafts market in Tel Aviv. These days it is held twice a week every Tuesday and Friday; the street market specializes in a variety of unique arts and crafts made by artisans and artists from all over the country. 



Nahalat Binyamin Market: Original Works of Art and Fun Entertainment

Since its grand opening in 1987; the street market began with just a few artists and now welcomes over 220 artisans to the pedestrianized street of Nachalat Binyamin every week. Because it is set along an enclosed road bordering Allenby Street; the market is lined with vibrant stalls, showcasing a wealth of beautiful and unique works ranging from exquisite glass dinnerware to one-of-a-kind custom-made jewelry. So now Tel Aviv’s art-hungry community flocks every week to find special gifts; treats, and treasures. 

So Nachalat Binyamin is a special place to shop as the market has strict quality controls that guarantee every item sold is handmade and original. Yet another rule of the market is that artists must sell their own work; so you have a chance to meet the genius behind the work. Also, the artists and their works have to be approved by a committee to ensure authenticity and originality. 

The market has a bustling; jovial atmosphere reminiscent of other large markets around the world; and there are always a few street performers dancing; singing, or presenting a dramatic show at the entrance to the market. A myriad of trendy cafés and coffee shops are tucked between the stalls serving freshly brewed coffee and mouth-watering pastries, providing great spots for taking a break from shopping; and sitting and watching the goings-on at the market. 

Visiting the Nahalat Binyamin Market

So the Nachalat Binyamin Market is located along Nachalat Binyamin Street at the junctions of Allenby; King George; and Sheinkin Streets. Also worth mentioning is that the market is open every Tuesday and Friday throughout the year and is open for most of the day. But try to get there early though, as it gets very busy. 

Insider Tip! 

After exploring the Nachalat Binyamin Market; try to pay a visit to the adjacent Carmel Market to get some fresh produce from fruit and vegetables to cheeses; meats, and olives. Also, the nearby neighborhood of Neve Tzedek is also worth exploring after a morning at the markets. In fact, on my guided tours of Tel Aviv I do take my guests to the markets; so don’t think twice and you are more than welcome to book a tour with me!
