One of my favorite places in all of Israel is the Mahane Yehuda Market or "the shuk." It's a huge market filled with merchants selling anything you can think of. You want freshly squeezed juice? Done. You want fresh fish? Done. You want any kind of kosher gummy? Done. You want meat? Done. You want amazing delicious cheeses? Done.

Today we decided to spend the day at the shuk walking around and soaking in the sights. The open air market is an experience. We walked up and down the aisles watching people purchase fresh fruits and vegetables. Today was a great day to go and take photos. When we went last Friday it was impossible to walk anywhere, it seemed all of Jerusalem was at the shuk purchasing food for shabbat.
I want to fill today's post with pictures of the shuk, not only one of the my favorite places in Israel but one of my favorite places in the world.

I'm a mom. A writer. A lover of good fantasy. A proponent of nursing when possible. A birth advocate. I am absolutely horrible at keeping my house clean or the dishes washed or the laundry done. I strongly believe in women having a positive birth. When we start to respect women's rights to birth the way they want, we can start to treat women as equal people in this world.
