One of the best ways to experience a country is through its food. There are quite a lot of open markets in Israel (shuk) and recently, due to some touristic demand, a local company called Mekomy started running some culinary tours in Tel Aviv. For tourists who don't know where to go and which markets to visit, these tours are a good way to understand and experience the true meaning of the 'melting pot' of culinary culture in Israel. Some of the tours are in English.
One of the tours is in Levinskyi market in the south of Tel Aviv. It's a small market, yet full of different people from different backgrounds: Turkish, Persian, Moroccan, Bulgarian and more. The tour guide will take you to some of the best locations in this market. Another tour is a walking tour in the Carmel market in Tel Aviv and afterwards a cooking class followed by lunch to enjoy the local food.
