About the Jerusalem for Vegetarians


Welcome to Jerusalem’s open-air market, Machaneh Yehudah, the repository of sights, sounds, tastes, and smells. The place is teeming with humanity — you’ll see every stripe of religion, and discern many countries of origin. That bustling has given rise to a robust culinary environment, with bakeries, pubs, spice markets, candy galore, and…don’t forget the fish market! Parallel to the diverse tastes of this area, you’ll find bargains on most dry goods. Pay careful attention to how different areas of the Shuk are populated by different kinds of wares, and, comparably, different ethnicities among the various Jews who call you to come sample what they have to sell. The market is the beneficiary of organic growth, as neighborhoods spread, as well as some political upheaval, back when the State of Israel achieved independence. Welcome to The Shuk — take care to sample all there is, and watch the people, in a feast for your eyes. And then strike up conversations with everyone you can — that’s where you’ll really encounter all the richness Machaneh Yehudah has to offer.

Highly recommended for tourists and very enjoyable for Jerusalemites like us!

A well-organized tour! Starting with a light appetiser, continuing with heavier main dishes and ending with coffee and sweet dessert. The route is logical and convenient. All the stations knew very well what they were talking about and were very kind and kind. The food was top-quality, delicious and satisfying! It's just tasting after tasting but we came out stuffed :) The app itself is friendly and provides information about the environment and the places themselves.

A varied and fun tour

Jerusalem was stunning and the weather was perfect !! Everywhere we went, they served us warmly and gadly ... It seems that the tour is new to them too and they are excited about the matter :) It was really fun !!

really fun!

All of the places were very nice and served us generously

Loved the tour

It was very interesting to walk around and taste different things at unknown places I would never find myself. Hummus was the best, ice cream in a cookie very unique, and healthy juices were so interesting. Really recommend the tour to all vegan/vegetarian people visiting Jerusalem
