Consider yourself a foodie? Join a food tour of the Machane Yehuda market - the most vibrant marketplace in the heart of Jerusalem. The tour takes you through the mythical shops and the hottest food stalls where you will taste the most popular local dishes that The Market has to offer.

Mahane Yehuda, the beloved Jerusalem market, has evolved into a bustling center of restaurants and nightlife. "Yalla Basta’s" culinary tour invites you to sample unique flavors and breath in the rich aromas of the vibrant Mahane Yehuda Market.

So what awaits you on the culinary tour?

During the tour, we will discover traditional restaurants that still prepare traditional dishes such as hand-rolled stuffed grape leaves, and spice shops that offer fresh, local ingredients. Visit Instagram-worthy food stalls that are redefining the Israeli street food scene, and delicatessens packed with imported cheeses and other delicacies from around the world. Together we will taste Georgian pastries fresh out of a tabun oven, locally brewed boutique beer, Yemenite jachnun, and deep-fried kubbeh - all depending on what is available in the market that day and the tour route.

The tour will be led by a qualified guide from Yalla Basta's hand-picked team. Your guide will tell wonderful stories about the Shuk and the surrounding neighborhood of Nachlaoat, immersing you in the colorful area around you.

We can ensure that even if you have visited Mahane Yehuda before, you’ll realize how much more there is to the Shuk and leave more knowledgeable and experienced than before.

Times

The tours run on Thursday and Friday mornings and are around 3 hours long.
