Kosher Options at Tel Aviv’s Sarona Market

Sarona Market is celebrating its first birthday! Sarona was opened to serve the people of Tel Aviv with an option for an air conditioned closed market with some of Israel’s best and fresh produce, baked goods, and gourmet eats. It’s based off Chef Mario Batali’s Eataly, but in Hebrew and in Tel Aviv, with an Israeli flair. Expect more of these gourmet, foodie markets to be opening up around Israel in the next couple of years.

Sarona is split into two parts:

  1. the outdoor section where there are designer shops and restaurants
  2. the closed market that is all about food

We’re writing about all the kosher locations in both areas.




Biga is a chain of restaurants/bakeries that offer fresh pastries and a full dairy menu to enjoy any time of the day. Not every Biga is kosher, so make sure before you head out there that it’s a kosher branch. The food at Biga is a fairly standard dairy restaurant fare. The portions are very generous and they have an extensive fish menu. For the kids there are kids meals and for adults you will find a nice cocktail menu!

You will find the most amazing breads, cakes, cookies and pastries there to take home, but there is a nice menu of sandwiches, quiches, and pastries to go with a great cup of coffee.

Paradiso Cafe Sarona took over for the previous dairy restaurant, Roy’s Chocolate. One of the nice things with the new ownership is that they make most of the dishes from scratch, like the pasta’s and pastries and salad dressings. Paradiso isn’t located in the marketplace, but right outside in the Sarona complex where there is plenty of other shopping to find there. Open all day. Click here for the menu.

We saved the only meat restaurant for last. Netachim isn’t only a meat sandwich shop, they are meat specialists. Every type of meat, condiment, and sauce at Netachim is cold smoked in-house. In addition to being a gourmet deli sandwich shop, you can buy anything to take home. It isn’t a restaurant, but it is definitely one of the best kosher meat sandwiches you will find in the city of Tel Aviv!
