Nachalat Binyamin street is a truly engaging marketplace filled with character, art & graffiti.
Graffiti in Israel is illegal. If you get caught in the act, you can be fined up to 3000 nis. However, what you see in Nachalat Binyamin is actually legal.
Bina Mochiach is the woman behind this initiative. She is connected to the city council & runs the promenade. She took the initiative of inviting the artists to spray paint here adding color & life to these streets.
Nachalat Binyamin has one of Israel’s biggest arts and crafts markets (every Tues & Friday) & a great place to browse for original
Tel-Aviv souvenirs. The architecture of the buildings is unique and when renovating, the architects try their best to preserve the charm. Don’t forget to look around you!
Tips for a fun day out around Nachalat Binyamin
On Tuesday & Friday, Nachalat Binyamin is transformed into an amazing arts & craft market. Not to be missed!
During those days, look out for the balloon man on those days (He can be found on Ramban/Nachalat Binyamin)
He can create any character a kid could want all for a sheckel per balloon. Recommended to give him more 😊
The Carmel Market, or Shuk HaCarmel is located right off Rechov Hashomer. It is the most famous of all Tel Aviv’s marketplaces. In recent years, it’s even joined the ranks of Tel Aviv’s trendy spots for bars, restaurants, coffee shops and chef-owned food stalls. It’s buzzing with good energy
Shenkin Street is also close by. Shoppers heaven for trendy clothes, fruit shakes & a true Tel-Aviv vibe.
