The Bakery Tour at the Machane Yehuda market guarantees a remarkable experience to those of you who get excited thinking about hot pastries just out of the oven. Behind each bakery and patisserie you will uncover an interesting story about people, recipes, or the tantalizing smells!
Some of the leading market bakeries continue to bake their own bread, pitot or other dough-based specialties by the same traditional methods that were prevalent dozens of years ago. Many harbor secret preparations passed from generation to generation. But some of the bakeries bring a new and fresh approach to market, with new and more advanced baking techniques. The fusion of new and the traditional bakeries give the shuk its special charm.
During the tour you will survey the mythological bakeries of old Machane Yehuda, as well as the newer “boutique” ones. You will discover trade secrets, as well as the bakeries' owners stories.
