This central and lovely street, the official name of which is "King George the Fifth”, begins at Masaryk Square, a small, pleasant and peaceful area in the heart of the city. In this area King George Street features on both its sides charming cafés and restaurants, some are already well-established, with a neighborhood relaxed atmosphere. Next to these are found various small businesses. As it continues, King George Street meets the large Dizengoff Center mall and the Meir Garden, which is an impressive green island in the heart of the city. King George Street continues on its way south until it meets with the trendy Shenkin Street and from there to Magen David Square- the entrance area into the Nachlat Binyamin Pedestrian Mall and the vibrant Carmel Market. King George Street is named after the British King George V. In short, strolling along this not too long a street will show you some of the good things that this city’s center has to offer.

Even though numerous real-estate entrepreneurs have been coveting it for quite some time, the small Bezalel Market still exists and offers its visitors lovely finds. The Bezalel Market, which opened in the 1920s, is today bordered by King George, Bezalel, Beit Lehem and Tchernichovsky Streets. At some stage and up until a few years ago the Bezalel Market was filled with many Falafel stands, some of which were considered legendary. Today only a few of them remain, and most of the Bezalel Market is composed of stands which offer cheap clothes, shoes, jewelry and decorations, house ware, cleaning and sewing materials in a charming mixture. In the near future a new residential and commercial project is planned to be built here. One can arrive at the heart of the Bezalel Market through Beit Lehem Street.

Near the colorfulness of Tel Aviv’s Carmel Market and the modernism of Sheinkin Street is the picturesque street of Nachlat Binyamin, on the pedestrian-only northern section of which takes place the biggest Arts and Crafts Fair of its kind in Israel. The fair, also the first and oldest of its kind in Israel, takes place on Tuesdays and Fridays and includes about 270 stands which offer original arts and crafts works made of wood, glass, cloth, plastic, metal, paper and stone. All works are made by the artists who also stand behind the stands, with the purpose of strengthening the relations between the artists and the consumers. On the sides of the street one can find colorful fabrics stores, coffee shops and restaurants and also street performances which take place here as well.

The strong smells of the Carmel market can be detected already from the small alleys leading to it- the fresh fish and vegetables and the newly baked breads blend in with the many people who come here, sellers and buyers alike. The Carmel market is named after the Carmel Street in which it is located, between Magen David square (at the intersection of King George, Sheinkin, Nahalat Binyamin and Allenby Streets) and HaKovshim Garden and the Carmelit bus terminal. Besides the busy market’s main stalls street, there are lovely picturesque alleys in the vicinity of the market through which one can walk all the way to the beach. In the Kerem HaTeimanim (The Yemenite Quarter), one of the neighborhoods adjacent to the market, there are popular and unique restaurants. Walking around on a summer day at the Carmel market is a wonderful experience of scents and tastes, even if you are not planning on doing your weekend shopping there.
