Stroll the aisles of Mısır Çarşısı to experience the smells, sounds, and tastes of Turkey. The large covered market is second only to the Grand Bazaar in the Turkish capital. Built in 1660, this was historically the hub of Istanbul's spice trade, and it continues to be today. Venture to the Eminonu quarter of the Fatih district to discover more than 80 different vendors selling spices, traditional Turkish delights and other sweets, dried fruits, nuts, and souvenirs. Try your luck at bargaining for your purchase, or just savor the intense, pleasing smells that the many spices offer. Plan a Istanbul trip in moments using our itinerary builder.
