Nachlaot and Mahane Yehuda - 10th August

posted Apr 21, 2011, 1:51 PM by Jack Cadranel
On Wednesday August 10th tour the picturesque neighbourhoods of Nachlaot and the bustling Mahane Yehuda Market. In the last quarter of the 19th Century Jewish neighbourhoods began to spring up along the Jaffa Road. A makeshift market began grew in a nearby field in an arrangement that suited everyone. Farmers from the local villages had found an outlet for their produce and residents of the new neighbourhoods were spared the long walk to the Old City to buy their food. Today these neighbourhoods and the market that grew up on their doorstep are much loved features of the city.
Meet at 9.30 a.m.at the corner of King George and Agrippas Streets.
Next week Monday's tour takes you from Yemin Moshe to Beit Harav Kook following the pioneers who dared to set up home outside the safety of the Old City walls. Wednesday's tour explores Markets and Marketplaces in the Old City.
