Today’s post is part of a weekly series called “Travel Toss-Up,” in which we ask you to take your pick between two amazing travel experiences.

This week’s toss-up offers a choice of two colorful shopping experiences.

Would you rather…

… wander through the chaotic souks of Old City Jerusalem, or …

… browse the offerings at the Jean-Talon Italian market in Montreal?

Jerusalem’s Old City is home to sprawling Arab souks selling everything from exotic spices and brightly colored pottery to traditional headdresses and ultra-modern T-shirts. In the heart of Montreal’s Little Italy neighborhood, Jean-Talon Market offers a mouth-watering selection of fruit, vegetables, bread, chocolate, maple syrup and other locally sourced foodstuffs.

    Definitely Old Jerusalem. This would mean I am in a place I have never been before. Of course, to be honest I’ve never been to Montreal, but I sure have wandered and loved lots of Italian markets!
    A presto
