Q&A: Joel Haber, Israeli Food Tour Guide, Jerusalem

“[Jerusalem’s Machane Yehuda Market] is not just about the fresh food. It is also a window onto this city’s culture and personality.” —Joel Haber, culinary tour guide in Israel

Joel Haber, also known as “Fun Joel” (and he does live up to that moniker), offers custom tours of all aspects of Israel, but he specializes in our favorite part: Jerusalem’s central market, called Machane Yehuda—or simply, “the Shuk.” When Haber walks the market, greetings come from every direction—vendors and visitors alike, as if he were a popular politician strolling the streets. His vast knowledge of local produce (and their exact season), delicacies, and history, combine with his entertaining style and strong relationships to provide a unique, informative, and extraordinarily tasty experience.

But until you can get to Israel and sample the charms and chow of the market yourself, we asked Haber to tell us a little bit more about the food and culture you’ll find at Machane Yehuda, and all over Israel.
