Shuk HaCarmel (Carmel Market, Tel Aviv)

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!
