A vendor and a shopper at the Carmel market in Tel Aviv Israel. The Carmel Farmers Market (CFM), a growers-only market, is Tel Aviv’s biggest and busiest marketplace filled with colorful stalls and shouting vendors selling a variety of goods, from dried fruits and exotic spices to clothing and footwear an exciting and bountiful place to buy fresh fruits, vegetables, meats, cheeses, eggs and plants. Many vendors have their own songs, which tell you all about the price and quality of what is being sold. Sometimes one vendor sings against another in a competitive duet. The market runs into side streets, large and small, one side favoring dry goods, and the other dried beans, fruit, nuts, and spices in all colors and fragrances, sold from sacks.
