It is perhaps unfair that Shuk HaCarmel doesn't have the same level of 'street cred' as Machane Yehuda in Jerusalem. Walking down one of its main thoroughfares, I found several shops selling different kinds of 'mini vegetables'. From here, I went and sampled the various types of cheeses on offer. I was like a kid in a candy (or cheese) store. While people living in Israel take having kosher products almost everywhere, it is a novelty for someone like me, living in the diaspora to be able to enter stores that only sells kosher cheese!
