Succot Market (Shuk Arbat HaMinim)

Here in Israel, once Yom Kippur ends, thoughts turn to Succot. There’s no better way to get ready for the holiday than to visit one of the Succot markets that spring up like mushrooms all over the country. Enjoy the festive atmosphere while you browse through stand after stand of etrogs, succahs and decorations. Try your hand at bargaining… The asking price is never the final price. Kids with balloons run in between men carrying huge bundles of palm branches. Teenaged hawkers guarantee you the “best price in town”. Some markets feature music and snacks. The whole family will enjoy the sights, sounds and smells of this uniquely Israeli experience.
