Cap off the gastronomic journey with sweet desserts served in perfect portions and a taste of Israeli liquor, from original local beers to the delightful sting of Arak. Carmel Market's diverse food offerings mirror the rich tapestry of ethnic groups that have settled in Israel, each contributing traditional foods. Your knowledgeable guide will introduce you to this cultural mosaic, unveiling the unique stories behind each culinary delight.
