And a Cat From Carmel Market by Alyssa Satin Capucilli; illustrated by Rotem Teplow. 2021. Published by KAR-BEN Publishing.

Brief summary: Bubbe goes shopping outside in Carmel Market for her Shabbat meal. She fills her cart with a challah, white candles, and chicken soup and continues gathering her items from the market including a few cats. The cats begin to loudly meow and misbehave during the dinner. Can Bubbe make them all behave and get along?

Comments: I did not know that Carmel Market(Shuk HaCarmel) is actually a real market in Tel Aviv, Israel until after I read this picture books. Looks like a fun place to visit.

Single and two paged illustrations.

There is a “Some Words to Know” section in the back.
