The Sarona Market was created in order to serve as the newest culinary heart-beat of Tel-Aviv.

It is located at the Sarona compound, a 140 year-old ex-Templer- settlement in the heart of Tel-Aviv.

At the time, German Templer-settlers arrived in Tel-Aviv in aspiration of pious-missionary Christian activities. Sarona had been their third settlement in Palestine.

The Templers had transformed the little hill that overlooked the Mediterranean Sea into a growing agricultural settlement that quickly shifted the city’s new citizens’ life to both commerce and leisure.

The area stretches in between Klan and Hashmonayim streets, near the Ayalon River and main route.

In year 2006 a plan to preserve 36 historical buildings was approved, in order to return the former façade from the time of the Templer- settlement.

Work has been underway in full speed so as to finish all designs and refurbishments in order to enable a new cultural center, in the original Templer spirit that will be influenced by the modern style and energy of contemporary Tel-Aviv.
