Tel Aviv – Kerem HaTaymanim and the Carmel Market
The Kerem HaTeymanim Neighborhood lies in the south of Tel Aviv, on the border of Jaffa, and some consider it the first Jewish neighborhood outside the walls of Jaffa. The idyllic neighborhood was established by Yemenite immigrants and is crowded and dense, yet quiet and pleasant at the same time. Within the Kerem, you will find authentic culinary treasures and hear fascinating stories about the neighborhood from its beginning and until today.
Tel Aviv’s first market – the Carmel Market – was established at around the same time as the Kerem, by immigrants from Russia who built the market to overcome a labor shortage and provide a place for the residents of the new city to purchase goods.
The combination of the two adjacent locations provides a diverse cultural experience and through this tour, we will get to know the range of cultures as exemplified in several restaurants.
