  Lots of "junk" at the Jaffa flea market

Although most people will find the souqs in Jerursalem much more interesting on a cultural scale, the flea market located by the Clock. The flea market is quite unlike any such market that I have seen back home in Canada. At the Jaffa flea market you can buy just about anything imaginable from musical instruments, brass beds, cooking utensils to used cars. Of course there is also a large choice of antique furniture. The flea market is a rather ramshackle affair that seems to define the phrase "organized chaos". Henced I really liked. However the flea market will not appeal to everyone. Some will find it filthy and full of quite simply said, junk.

What to buy: Imagine it and you will find it here.

Directions: Buy to old Clock Tower east of Jaffa's old town and south of Tel Aviv
Theme: Other
