There's the usual selection of fish at wholesale prices. Although there's a wide variety, there are no places to cook what you bought. Still, it's bustling and worth a walk thru if you are looking for fresh seafood.

If you get nauseated easily, do not go there... it is interesting to see... relatively reasonably priced if you are going to buy a ton of fish, an experience to be sure.. but... not for the weak of heart.

Not missing any market as such on my trips, I have seen a lot of different fish markets around the world, and this one is impressively clean and organized. Though the selection is not that impressive, there are definitely seasonal surprises. A hidden falafel place is the most interesting of all. In the fish market building by the East Entrance... More

It’s also likely to be a long way from heaven if you’re sensitive to the scents of marine life! But even if you are you really... More
