Visit ten neighborhoods that are as captivating as the boutiques within them. So take your time: Thanks to the settings, shopping in these neighborhoods is more than just a quick act of consumerism.

Jaffa Flea Market, Tel Aviv

Thanks to a renovation of the neighborhood’s Ottoman-style buildings and the droves of restaurants and one-of-a-kind boutiques that have settled there in the last several years, Jaffa’s northern reaches have become Tel Aviv’s latest entertainment hot spot.

For shoppers, on-street flea-market wares and antiques are the main attraction, but contemporary clothing, accessories and home items are available, too. Head to Asufa (8 Yehuda Margoza; asufadesign.com) for its selection of pieces like architectural neon stools, quirky prints and dinosaur broaches crafted by young Israeli creatives.

For custom perfumes, visit Zielinski & Rozen Perfumerie (10 Rabbi Pinchas St.; 972-54/774-0566), a new fragrance shop where you can build your very own bottle from owner Erez Rozen’s exhaustive stock of notes, such as vanilla, lemongrass, jasmine and grapefruit.
