Jaffa, Israel, which sits at the southern tip of Tel Aviv, boasts one of the oldest Mediterranean ports in the world. A few blocks north of the waterfront is an intriguing attraction: the Jaffa Flea Market. The alleyways, covered walkways and outdoor verandas that make up the market have been in operation for more than 100 years, and on any given day a mix of locals and tourists can be witnessed clogging its streets in search of treasure.

From The Grapevine recently paid the market a visit.
