Nachalat Binyamin Nachalat Binyamin is a unique pedestrian mall shopping experience in central Tel Aviv rating : 4.5 4.5 0 out of 5 / 34 votes

In 1987 the city made Nachalat Binyamin into a pedestrian mall by closing off the three streets that make up the neighborhood to vehicles and the largest arts-and-crafts fair in Israel was born.
The neighborhood was created by an association of tradesmen, clerks and shopkeepers who wanted to create a neighborhood similar to the city's first district, Ahuzat Bayit. In those days, Nachalat Binyamin Street, the central street of the neighborhood, was the longest road in the city. The first dwellers were craftsmen who were looking for affordable housing.  In the early twentieth century a small number of houses were built and the neighborhood joined up with the city of Tel aviv so that the neighborhood could fully develop.
Every Tuesday and Friday the street comes to life with a festival of arts, crafts and performances. Over two-hundred artists set up their stalls on a regular basis and offer unique, handmade wares to pedestrians who wander the three-pronged streets of the neighborhood. The merchandise ranges from jewelry to glass ornaments, from Judaica items to purses, from stuffed animals to ceramic pots, and much, much more. All products are sold by the artists themselves which makes for an interesting experience, allowing the potential buyers to hear first-hand about the product and to find the most suitable one for them.
For the less shopping-inclined, the open-air bazaar that is Nachalat Binyamin makes for a pleasant stroll, with fine restaurants, quaint cafes, breath-taking street performances and beautiful live music. Nachalat Binyamin is simply a must for those visiting Tel Aviv who are looking to buy one-of-a-kind gifts for family and friends or just looking for an entertaining day out.
Hours: The pedestrian mall at Nachalat Binyamin is open on Tuesdays and Fridays from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM, in June until 6:00 PM and in the months of July and August until 7:00 PM. In the case of heavy rain or winds the pedestrian mall isn't open.

Love it, frequent visitor http://israeltripplanner.com/images/site/stars/v1/stars40.png reviewed May 18, 2013

Make sure to visit on Tuesday/Friday when the place really comes to life with street performers, artists selling their own products and countless stalls filled with stunning art and craft pieces. For those who don't like crowds- you've been warned...

A fantastic experience- the arts and crafts fair is a glimpse at some of the unique Israeli creativity. I walked away with some very special presents for friends, family and myself!
