The Betzalel Arts Fair in Jerusalem happens every Friday (from 10:00 – 16:00), and has to be the ultimate spot in the Holy City if you’re looking for some authentic arts and crafts from Israeli artists.
The equivalent of Tel Aviv’s famed Nachalat Binyamin fair, this awesome little arts and crafts market is a great place to find some truly memorable souvenirs of a visit to Israel, or the perfect spot for locals to grab something unique.
The arts and crafts lovers of you will truly enjoy the work of more than 150 artisans, with a wide range of products on display, including jewelry, ceramics, and uniquely designed Judaica. There’s a wealth of creativity on display here, so enjoy – and buy!
RECOMMENDED: Betzalel Arts Fair is just down the road from the famous Ben Yehuda street promenade, so combine the two for a perfect Friday!
The exact location of the Betzalel Arts Fair is Shats Street in Jerusalem, between Bezalel Street and Shmuel HaNagid on the edge of the Nahlaot neighborhood. For more info call 052-4794141.
