4/5 based on 1,500+ reviews on the web
Stroll the aisles of Egyptian Bazaar 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 to see Egyptian Bazaar and other attractions that appeal to you using our Istanbul trip generator.

  • This year we had the opportunity to visit Istanbul for three days and one of the best places we met was the Bazaar or Egyptian species, tasted delicious sweets and different kinds of tea, of which we bought several to bring home and share with our families, highly recommended and an indisputable visit place. The prices are not the best but you can get things from different places of the East including crockery and lamps that can be achieved also in the great bazaar a few minutes walk. For most this say that it is a place more than recommended to visit with time and money as you want to buy everything, kindness and friendliness of the people completed the 5 stars that I gave.
