North Market (Shuk Tsafon) in Tel Aviv – The Guide


North Market in Tel Aviv

The guide to North Market starts with basics (map, directions, parking, opening hours), and then we will visit it. Let’s begin!

On One Foot

Following the success of Tel Aviv Port Market, the same entrepreneur decided to open another place. And it is the North Market in Tel Aviv.

Similarly to Tel Aviv Port Market, it is also a small market in an air-conditioned building with lots of restaurants and top-notch products.

Map

North Market is located in Northern Tel Aviv, hence the name. The full address is 20 Raoul Wallenberg Street.

Directions

In case you are using public transport, then a variety of buses reaches this area. Here is already a preset link to Moovit. Just enter your starting point, and you will get the updated directions.

And if you are driving then you will need to find parking.

Parking

Let me start by saying that locating free parking in this area is almost impossible. Finding empty parking places on the street (blue and white curb) is also rare.

There are many paid parking lots in the area. The closest one is the North Market parking lot. It has two entrances – one at HaNechoshet Street 3, and the other at Raoul Wallenberg Street 18. And after our visit, I even read online that visitors at the North Market can park there for free if they stamp their parking ticket at the market.

Opening Hours

Sunday – Thursday: 10:00 – 22:00
Friday: 08:00 – 16:00

Restrooms

The lavatories are located one floor beneath the market and can be reached by stairs.

At the North Market

The market was opened about a year ago (probably 2015) in one of Tel-Aviv’s industrial (mostly High Tech) zones. Therefore, next to regular stores, the market offers many restaurants.

Since it is located in the industrial zone, it is hard to find parking. But since we visited on a Friday morning, we were able to find paid parking.

North Market is quite small. There are around 30 stores/restaurants in total. And there is also a florist:

There are several bakeries:

Keep in mind that it is an expensive area, and most restaurants and stores are quite expensive. But, on the other hand, you can find delicatessen.

Close to the North Market you can find other stores as well. For example, there is a branch of “Artisan bread” bakery. It is one of my favorite bakeries in Israel. Not only because of their products but also because of their service. For example, when we bought bread there, they gave us a vacuum bag and told us that if we want to freeze part of the bread, then we should use this bag. It is not something big, but it shows their thoughtfulness and care.

Back to the North Market, and this is a fish stand:

We tried two of those, and I can not recommend them.

After going through the market and back, we looked for a place to eat. But, since as I mentioned it was Friday morning, most restaurants were closed (open only at noon). And in the end, we went to a nearby restaurant.

Summary

Overall, the North market is not a big place and does not offer a great variety. If you are in the area, then you can visit and grab something to eat. But I would not drive there just for the sake of the visit. If you love such kind markets, then you should check out Sarona Market.
