the spot to have a bite: Flea Market in Tel Aviv!
Trendy and bubbling Tel Aviv is full with nice spots to have a bite, a drink or to go shopping. Another thing you definitely have to visit when you are in Tel Aviv, is the Flea Market in Old Jaffa. Old Jaffa is the old city centre of Tel Aviv full of culture and history. But also full with painted garage doors and cool hipster hotspots. In the small, tiny streets you will find a lot of restaurants where you can get delicious food and where its is super fun to hang out. The streets are full with chairs, the lights go on in the evening and there is live music on the streets.
The Flea Market reminded us a little of the vibe in the Jordaan or Barcelona. This is the spot where locals (especially in the weekend) will go for a bite or a drink with friends. From far you can hear people talk and music playing. So much fun! We tried to visit as many restaurants as we could and in this blog we tell you about our favourites!
Main Bazar >> Flea Market Tel Aviv
Main Bazar is a hummus bar where they serve home-made hummus. You have to eat hummus when you are in Tel Aviv so only that is already a reason for this to be our favourite!
