Visit Mahane Yehuda and Levinsky Market
My Epic Israel Food tours offer first-hand accounts, stories from shopkeepers, tricks from bakers and produce from farmers. It’s a behind-the-scenes, all-senses-go, culinary extravaganza that leaps from the heart of Israel’s food markets straight onto visitors’ taste buds.
Mahane Yehuda Jerusalem
We'll explore Jerusalem's Mahane Yehuda's eateries, bakeries, food stalls, and spice shops. We talk about the story of Israel through its food and the impact immigrants have made on the market from its inception until today. It isn't a tasting tour, it's a food tour. And we eat. A lot. 100% Family friendly!
Spice up your trip to Tel Aviv with a tour of Levinsky market. Levinsky market was founded by immigrants in the 1920’s from Greece, Bulgaria and Turkey, and later joined by immigrants from Iran. Levinsky Market is a cultural melting pot where you can find unique spices, dried fruit, cheeses, nuts, pickles, olives, coffee and the best halvah you’ll ever eat.
