A haul video from the Haifa shuk (or farmer's market)

I think this is what a real haul video looks like...

Back in Chile, we did a post with a haul video showing off all the fruits and veggies we bought at La Vega Mercado (man, it's weird to think in Spanish now...). Here in Haifa, we've managed to find an apartment just 2 blocks from the city's market, or shuk שוק in Hebrew.

We do almost all our shopping there, except for a few things that we buy from a somewhat sketchy Russian grocery store nearby. What makes it sketchy? Let's just say that they only have 3 aisles, and one of those aisles is the vodka aisle.

So, without further ado, here is a haul video from the shuk in Haifa. You can learn the names of some fruits and vegetables in Hebrew, and also get a glimpse of the awesome cucumbers they have here in Israel.


  1. It's great to "see" you! French is similar, in that the word for potato is pomme de terre - apple of earth. I haven't heard actual apples being called anything but pommes though.

  2. I hadn't seen the apartment, it looks really nice. Don't know the size from the pictures, that is probably good!!!
