The Farmers` Market
When you enter the orchard of Grandpa Yossi, you will see the market to your left (covered market), the camels to your right, and food trucks in front of you.
The farmers` market was not big, with about 15 stands. Several fruits and vegetables stand, two stalls with cakes, flowers, honey, olive oil stand, and several others. Also, since we visited during Shavuot, there were two cheese stands.
There was also a small art and crafts market (about five stalls) near the covered market.
During our visit, there were two food trucks. One served coffee with pastries, and the other offered sausages and other meat products. Since it was the morning, we chose coffee. But there are not that many seating places in the shade. And in the end, we sat under the sun.
You can find restrooms in the back corners. And near the toilets, you can find horses and chickens.
And as I mentioned before, near the entrance, you can find a family of camels.
If you want to learn more about Yossi, there are info signs by the entrance.
The orchard of Grandpa Yossi has a relaxing vibe, and if you are in the area, you can stop for a visit. But as at most farmers` markets, do not expect to find cheap produce. You can find quality vegetables and fruits, but they will not be cheap.
