Shop or just feast your eyes on pyramids of colored spices, Turkish delights, and other sweets at Mısır Çarşısı, one of the largest bazaars in the city.

Today the covered shopping complex houses a total of 85 shops selling dried herbs, dried fruits, nuts, jewelry, and caviar.

  • It is nice place with cheap and reasonable prices I recommend you to have a tour around the bazaar to know more about the prices. 
  • The Bazaar that I liked most. Any kind of spices but especially the and salt can be found. Both formats ranging from personal use gift form both in economic version. Worth visiting

  • Just enter striking the smell that there is. It is a very big Bazaar packed with stalls of species. I recommend buying the Red Apple tea, smell as the flavor is spectacular. It should be careful with the prices since they try to collect a kilo of tea although you've bought 200 grams.

  • The best bazaar in Istanbul and the streets around where you can find the a nice spirit of trading goods. Inside the bazaar I recomend the Doğu Pagaríamos wich sells spices and the famous turkish delight. Here you can actually taste before you buy. The lady speaks very good English and she is super nice.
  • Smells wonderful. Full of friendly people and beautiful spices and food. Try not to get pushed into buying something you don't want. Even a firm no is usually not enough!
  • Colorful place where you can find all kinds of spices, dried fruits, pickled vegetables, some of the best sweets and Turkish delight in town. Keep an eye on your belongings though as the area is known for being a place of preference for pickpockets too.
  • Otantic, like to be in cosmopolit crowd, egzotic smells all around,
  • “Colorfull Bazaar” I have a nice memory with one of seller at this bazaar, they real Muslim and halal food, nice at talking and marketing
