Haifa >> Markets & Shopping

If you enjoy shopping, be it for clothes or collecting souvenirs and hand made crafts-Haifa has a few spots to insure a satisfying shopping spree. 

The lower part of the city is made up of a selection of cafes and restaurants and a mix match of shops to hunt around. There’s also the Daliyat el-Carmel, which is a Druze village that sits on the slopes of the Mount Carmel. Every Saturday Dliyat el-Carmel markets open and the inhabitants of this particularly unique colourful place offer warm hospitality. You’ll find some unusual souvenirs and handcrafted items such as baskets and trays made in the Druze style. Items are moderately priced but do bargain in order to get the best value!
While you stroll around taking in the magnificent views, and picking up a bargain or two, slow the pace of your day and rebuild your energy in one of the many genuine Druze food restaurants where you can indulge in some sweet, yummy, baklava pastries that attract both locals and tourists.
There are also a few galleries throughout the market where cultural evenings are held and you can welcome in the night with.
If you like big shopping malls, there is “Kastra” which has the largest mural in the world or on the Ben Gurion Boulevard there is a renovated street (below the Bahai Gardens) that has stores that sell Templer style merchandise. The ‘City centre’ mall is located in the German colony. Don’t forget to wear comfortable shoes for all the walking around that will be had!
