The Machane Yehuda market in Jerusalem, Israel is a treasure trove of teas, candies, spices, breads, fruit, and vegetables.  The brilliant colors and expansive trove of choices awakens the senses and the breadth of options opens to the excitement of cooking possibilities.

Open market stalls beckon shoppers to luxuriate and sample the many varietals.  Custom mixes to adorn salads and sweeten teas embrace all ethnicities and cultures.

Looking back at my many photos, how I wish I could amble there once again! The privilege to select the choicest and freshest dried fruits, nuts, and seasonings is sorely missed.


Thank you so much for stopping by.  I hope that you enjoy your visit.
