Jerusalem’s Machane Yehuda Food Market Unveiled As Gourmand Paradise

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

New York, New York – Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine

Jerusalem’s legendary Machane Yehuda open-air food market has developed into a gourmand wonderland, featuring more than 250 food stalls and vendors boasting a wide range of products — from locally sourced produce, dairy products and delicacies to imported sweets and organic wines from Israel and around the world.

Conveniently located just steps away from the Jerusalem city center, the Machane Yehuda market was first established in 1887 and exists today as one of Israel’s most buzzing markets, where espresso bars, photography galleries and fashion boutiques sit alongside butchers, repairmen and vegetable vendors. The Machane Yehuda market has also launched a new website, featuring interactive maps, interviews with vendors and options to book special themed tours.

“The Machane Yehuda Market is one of the most exciting parts of the city for travelers and locals alike,” said Haim Gutin, Israel Commissioner for Tourism, North and South America. “The colorful mix of local and international gourmet food products will be sure to surprise and satisfy travelers of all tastes and palates.”

The market will also host the Balabasta food festival, featuring food-centric events, music and acting performances, every Monday through August 2012.
