Kerem HaTeimanim

Market stalls, outdoor book shops, and textured street art infused with Yemenite influence.

The din of locals haggling over tomatoes and chicken liver in Shuk HaCarmel's stalls can be heard most days in the otherwise quiet neighborhood of Kerem HaTeimanim. What locals lovingly call The Yemenite Vineyard has the soul of a village, where residents' noses lead them through narrow alleys to steaming bowls of traditional Yemenite meat soup.
