Most people don't know the greatest kept secret of the shuk, and it happens every Friday afternoon, as the pre-Shabbat hustle and bustle begin to slow.

Just as the shuk is starting to close on Friday afternoon, many of the stores and vendors will sell their produce and food with a big discount. On your next Shabbat adventure in Jerusalem, try getting to the shuk 2-3 hours early, and see what delicious and cheap Shabbat treats await you!

*Our special iKonnect tip for you is to head on over to Teller Bakery, with all of their fluffy, artisans, and unique bread. Friday afternoon before close-up, they sell all of their bread for 50% off!
