It’s a highlight those who have travelled to Israel know all too well… The sights, smells, sounds and treasures of “the Shuk”. Be it Jerusalem’s Mahaneh Yehudah or Tel-Aviv’s Carmel markets, it’s an experience so quintessentially Israeli that any trip to the Middle East would be sadly incomplete if one were to return without at least one bargain discovered and haggled over at the shuk.

The event is an initiative of HaMayan and Gift Israeli, and will feature a wide variety of stalls selling Judaica, Israeli art, clothing, accessories, gifts and kosher foods.

“I am thrilled that so many local small businesses have seen the value in having our very own shuk in the heart of Caulfield,” said event organiser Sari Eisen.

“We would like this to become a regular feature of our community, not only to showcase the wonderful items available but also to offer community member a fun and safe family day out,” she added.

To this end there will be lots on offer to keep the kids entertained, including Tamar’s Puppet Show, a Recycling is Fun workshop, hair styling and more.

There will also be pizza and felafel by Zavdiels, coffee, cakes and desserts by Sweet Crumble and prizes galore.

Best of all, shoppers don’t need to feel guilty about indulging themselves with the many bargains on offer – proceeds from Shuk Caulfield will be going to support local community organisations, including the renovation of HaMayan’s new Shule.

Shuk Caulfield will take place on Sunday, 21 July from 11am to 4pm at Caulfield Shule Hall, 572 Inkerman Road.
