About the Hipster Tel Aviv

 

Israel is replete with markets of all kinds, some are even to be found in shopping malls, but there are a few markets that are truly exceptional, unique, and one-of-a-kind. The Levinsky market is that kind of market. The product of a labourer’s neighborhood settled by immigrants from Thessaloniki and Bulgaria, the Levinsky market is a feast for the senses. It is one of the most authentic markets in the country, where each stall and shop has its own story to tell. Behind the pots bubbling with their delicious aromas, stand generations of mothers and grandmothers who have imparted their secret recipes down through the generations; there are spices here so mysterious they’re practically magic, pastries that melt on the tongue, and drinks that take you back to the days when Tel Aviv was young.

On this tour we offer you a journey among tastes and memories; a tale of cultures, communities, and history, and the human stories that together make a visit to the market so extraordinary. Along the way, we will get to know the rebellious, anti-establishment undertow of the neighborhood, which challenges itself again and again; from the Saloniki immigrants who founded it to the graffiti artists who express it anew every night. Join us for this tour of Florentine; an unusual neighborhood full of surprises that will ignite your senses and inspire your imagination.

We enjoyed experiencing the Levinsky area through the food.

The fruit-drink was amazing and refreshing. Unfortunately, the burekas was closed already, but we got compensated for it. I recommend the tour to everyone. 

Highly recommend !!
