Lots of shops and people to see. Plenty of small place to eat or get snacks. You can spend 1+ hours walking around no problem.

This is an old-style spice, nut and produce market that is probably unchanged for 50+ years. Great prices and selection for fresh products. It would help to speak Hebrew or Arabic.
