Nazareth’s colorful Market is authentically Arab. It offers a wide variety of stores and merchandise, and its buildings date from the Ottoman era. Many of the city’s major attractions are to be found in and around the Market’s passageways.
Although it started in the seventeenth century, the major evolution of the Market was in the nineteenth century. In its past, it was divided by themes – the Brides’ Market, the Vegetable Market, the Tinsmith’s Market and the Carpenter’s Market – but today the separate markets exists largely in name only. The Market offers houseware stores, fruits, vegetables, traditional sweets, embroidered clothes, scarves and craftsmen’s stores. The Market’s scents, ancient houses, passageways and unique character turn every visit into an unforgettable experience.more
