Market
“This is the main "souk" similar to markets of many Mediterranean cities. This one is definitely the exposed, beating heart of Jerusalem, it’s an adventurous dip into the very essence of Jerusalem and as such it is hectic, intense, colorful and ever changing. In the daytime the shuk is active as a market, with vendors selling fresh fruits and vegetables; baked goods; fish, meat and cheeses; nuts, seeds, and spices In the evening until late at night is transforms to a center of Jerusalem nightlife with restaurants, bars and live music.”

Market
“One of the must-visits in Jerusalem. Tons of shops, bars, restaurants and cafés within the market and nearby streets. There are also live music some evenings, although I would recommend that you visit during the day when all shops are open.”

Restaurant
“The Mehniuda Restaurant is a Mediterranean and seasonal market restaurant in the Mahane Yehuda market, where three Jerusalem chefs who also own the place are collaborating: Asaf Granit, Yossi Elad and Uri Navon. The special collaboration of three richly-renowned chefs intensifies the culinary creation, each expressing its own style in the restaurant, creating both a complex and straightforward Jerusalem cuisine - meticulous, accurate, direct and not sophisticated. In each serving, one chef leads the tone in the kitchen, and the others line up and function as regular cooks. There you will find a variety of dishes under Israeli and Mediterranean influences.”
