Market Street

Market Street


Market Street is the 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 Acre's main market – a colorful range of stalls displaying fish, sweet oriental pastries as well as shops selling perfume and original spices.


The market is undergoing a restoration process, which includes the inner renovation of the shops, their facades and the market route.

There are two Jewish landmarks at the southern end of the market: Chaim Parchi's Home and the Ramchal Synagogue.


Business Hours

The market is open all week long until 6 pm. During the festival season, the market is open to the public until later.
