Address:
2 Machane Yehuda St.

 


Shopkeeper:
Haim Hamawi


Shop name:
The Hamawi Brothers


About:
Haim Hamawi's father ran a vegetable store in the shuk; after his death, Haim and his brothers opened a butcher shop in its place. The Hamawi brothers were the first ones to bring frozen meat to the market; because it was much cheaper than fresh meat, they were very successful. Native Jerusalemites have known the family for a very long time, which is one of the reasons the store has retained many of its regular clients, who swear by the shop’s reliability.

 


Established in:
1961


Message for the people:
Come to the market and enjoy the special atmosphere.


To me, the shuk is:
All my life.
