Jaffa Rd. and Agrippas St., Jerusalem, , Israel

Jerusalem’s labyrinthine open-air market, Mahane Yehuda—also referred to as the “shuk”—is located between Jaffa Road and Agrippas Street. It is the largest and busiest outdoor market in all of Israel and is always full, even the day after a terrorist attack. (During the period of the Second Intifada, between 2000 and 2005, the market was the scene of several bombings; today guards check everyone entering.) It gets more and more crowded toward the end of the week and by Friday afternoon, when the prices have been reduced, students and foreign workers come to stock up on bargains. It's a melting pot of social and cultural commerce.
