    My experience in the Grand Bazaar was surprisingly pleasant. There is a variety of different shops selling either jewellery, traditional tea and spices, souvenirs or fake designer clothes and bags. We got tired only by walking around since the bazaar is extremely big. The prices they sell are relatively expensive though, compared to shops around the Grand Bazaar, and even if you manage to lower the price a bit, I wouldn’t be sure if it would be worth it. Nevertheless, it’s a destination someone definitely has to visit once in their life, and we had a good time overall.

    Kadikoy neighborhood is one of these places and is located in the Asian part of Istanbul and is one of the oldest neighborhoods in Istanbul, which has made significant progress in recent years and many shopping centers and markets have been established in it and the center. Shopping Kozi is one of them, in this neighborhood there are very old passages such as Opera Onur Passage, which is a good place to buy all kinds of clothes with different brands.

    Nice shopping area, plenty of interesting shops and they didn't seem as pushy as some of the other vendors in the City. I would recommend for most items

    The Second Hand Book Bazar must have been here in Beyazit for a very long time. It was an important cultural centre because books were printed here. So the bust exhibited in the market shows the man who printed the first book in Turkey.
    The book bazar is very close to the Grand Bazar, which you can easily access from Saharlar Çarşısı. The books you will find there are mostly in Turkish. They are not as old as you may expect. A lot of them are dictionaries or books for university exams. You can also buy pictures or souvenirs. I have heard that some visitors actually find interesting books at Sahaflar Çarşısı but I have never seen anything that would have interested me to such an extent that I would have bought it. However, the atmosphere in this market is nice on the whole.

    We went to this market on a Friday after taking the ferry from Eminou to Kadikoy. From Kadikoy you need to get the 8A bus and get off at Mandira Caddesi- the market is just opposite.

    It sells fruit, clothing, and homewards.

    You can find this bazaar just under the aquaduct. I should have bought something here, for I've already bought dried fruit and soap at another shop.... You can find some products of East Anatoria here. Just looking around is enough to give you the real local Istanbul!! The staff do not speak English well, so you need to make yourself understood in Turkish when necessary.
    ヴァレンス水道橋の下にあるローカルバザールです。東部アナトリアのものを売っているお店が多く、観光客はあまりいない印象です。したがってお店のスタッフは英語をほとんど話しません。

    The Wednesday market here stretches over several streets in the Carsamba area. Lots of fruit and vegetable vendors, just now (in May) there were fresh strawberries, mulberries, cherries. Plenty of spices, olives, grains. Not so much fish or meat.
    Household articles and clothing too. All catering to the local population who were out in force browsing and buying.

    Myself and my family were in Istanbul for the second time on holiday. Being a big fan of the Turkish series Resurrection Etugurul, I wanted a scarf hat like Halime Sultan. I was suggested by the lovely staff at my hotel to try visiting Mahmut Pasha Bazaar where they would have the hat as well as others. We walked from our hotel which was a nice walk, this bazaar is on the way to Grand Bazaar and in my opinion has a lot more variety and prices are very reasonable. I bought my Halime sultan hat which made me very happy as well as local Turkish perfumes, lace and brooches to take back to England. If I hadn’t done most of my shopping in sultan Ahmet locally, then I would have bought more things from here as there’s a lot of variety and prices are very cheap. When I visit Istanbul again, this bazaar will be the place I go to for my shopping as there’s everything available.

    I love this market. Its in quite an upmarket area of Istanbul so is totally different to, for example, the Fatih Wednesday market. Its best for nice cheap copies of designer brands but occasionally its possible to find a stall selling unusual and creative clothes.Also you can find cheap zara or similar for 10 lira.Whats not to like?

    You can visit this pazar on Saturdays. It is close to Taksim, right in the area of Tarlabasi. You can find there strange goodies, fresh products and interesting faces. The people there are unique and if you are interested in street photography that’s a place you should visit.

    This square in the Heart of the town center and ajecent to shops, is quite unique and represent the products of the surrounding villages. It has hone, jams, vegetables, fruits and other handcraft. Price are very resnable and the sellers are full of joys and proud of thier products. They also generous with quantities so it is not significant to price the extra grams. It is very nice experience and interaction that you don't find in supermarket. Do not miss this place when you visit Şile town.

    This bazaar is very small and not crowded at all despite it's very near to the Blue Mosque. I don't know it's very worth seeing. You can visit here if you have some time. . . .
    ブルーモスクのすぐ裏手にあるすごく小さなバザールです。ここで買い物するかどうかは別として、歩きやすいのは確かです。並行してあるアラスタバザールは最近呼び込みが結構多くなっていますから、品物をじっくり選びたければこちらのほうがいいかもしれません。
