ISTANBUL SHOPPING AND SEAFOOD GUIDE






Shopping and Seafood In Istanbul

  • Refresh your senses in the Spice Bazaar

  • Shop for antiques in Cukurcuma

  • Haggle in the Grand Bazaar

  • Enjoy the buzz on Nevizade Sokak

    Grand Bazaar, Istanbul

    Morning

    The Spice Bazaar is a riot of colour, stalls and smells, where you can buy any number of exotic foodstuffs, including hand-made Turkish delight and creamy goats' cheese.

    From here, head up to the bustling Grand Bazaar, a labyrinth Ottoman shopping complex housing thousands of leather, rug, ceramics and jewellery shops.

    Prices are inflated and price tags often absent altogether so remember to bargain.

    All this shopping is bound to whet your appetite, so head for the waterfront district of Kumpkapi, where you will find more than 50 fish restaurants vying for your attention.

    Again, many outlets do not display prices, so ask before you order.

    Afternoon

    Revived and restored, take a taxi to the Galata Bridge and stroll over to trendy Tunel and Beyoglu, soaking up the view as you go.

    Take time to browse around the cosy cafes and bars in Tunel, before making your way up Istiklal Cadessi to shop for clothes, shoes, books and music.

    Further up, the district of Cukurcuma is a hunting ground for antique furniture and ornaments. Nevizade Sokak, just off Istiklal Cadessi, is a narrow street lined with dozens of meyhanes.

    The area really comes alive at night, when hundreds of locals flock here and passers-by are serenaded by traditional musicians.
