The Acre market is a small and charming market that is always fun to go back to The food sold there is Arab and Druze, and looks colorful and inviting. I recommend buying olives, halva, spices and Arabic sweets. In the market there is one of the most popular hummuses in Israel – Sayid There are also shops that sell... More

As you walk and smell coffee, spices, all manner of produce. You see how locals have been doing business for thousands of years.

This small bazaar is a nice place to visit, but there is not much to do there, and almost nowhere to sit, even for a cup of coffee. Having said all that there was a nice feeling touring there, and there a few shops to visit. Bear in mind we visited the market a day before x-mas.

With many unusual items and of great quality it was worth visiting. We purchased items of reasonable price but great value which I was pleased with. The traders take pride in selling quality items that are good value and great price. I found items I never dreamed of and will form part of my home for many years to come

This market is simply beautiful. A vast variety of shops and eateries will guarantee you enjoy the walk through the old market. This is on top of the special architecture of course. It pretty much shut down at 15:00 when we visited on a Thursday though.

Nazareth has beautiful churches, during the Crismess night of many tourists and locals. The city and mainly market amazingly decorated with a lot of Christmas decorations. There is a pleasant stroll to see, there are good restaurants... More

I like the atmosphere of markets like these. My husband, not so much, he'd rather just walk on through and get it over with. My kids and I had fun looking at souvenirs and trinkets. We bought a few things but overall didn't see anything THAT special.

It was worth walking through but nothing was purchased. Store owners were not pushy - which was a huge plus!!

To me, there wasn't much I found interesting to buy, but I'm still glad I went! I've never seen a covered market like this before, so I found all of it really interesting! I still recommend going just for the experience. If you're pressed for time on your sightseeing tours though, you really aren't missing anything if you have to... More
