Akko Old City “Shuk” Tasting Locations

Market Street is the Akko Old City’s main route running from north to south. During the Crusader Period, this street led from the Hospitallers Gate in the north along the market route – or through Kings Way (“Via Regis”) – all the way to the port. Nowadays this route accommodates Old City Akko’s main market – a colorful range of stalls displaying fresh vegetables, fish, sweet pastries and spices as well as shops selling home items and souvenirs.
