There is a new and very large fruit & vegetable vendor in Machane Yehuda, in the ‘Iraqi Shuk’ to be a bit more accurate. The store, Ega Brothers, is under the hechsher of Badatz Eida Chareidit, making it only the second fruit and vegetable vendor with an Eida hechsher in the shuk to the best of my memory.
For the unfamiliar, one may enter the Iraqi shuk from Machane Yehuda Street (the open street). If you are heading from Agrippas to Jaffa, then turn left about 2/3 of the way up. If you are working your way from Jaffa to Agrippas, then turn right about 1/3 of the way.
See photos for a sneak peek as well as an access street from Machane Yehuda Street to the Iraqi Shuk.
