"Misir Çarsisi" Spice Bazaar - Egyptian Bazaar Tip by H-TownJourneyman
Spice Bazaar - Egyptian Bazaar, Istanbul: 53 reviews and 126 photos
Built in 1664 to help pay for the construction of the Yeni Camii, or the New Mosque, the Egyptian Spice Bazaar has for centuries been a marketplace for food products. It's name comes from the spices that came through Egypt via the renowned Silk Road out of central & southern Asia. Nowadays, vendors still sell such items here - fresh spices, fruits, nuts, meats, & candy, as well as other products like jewelry, carpets, & souvenirs for visitors. As in the Grand Bazaar, you can put your bargaining skills to the test here. Also akin to the Grand Bazaar are many of the shop owners, who can get a little aggressive in trying to show you what they are selling (and hoping you will buy something). But this is the bazaar experience! And if the Spice Bazaar itself doesn't fill your needs, as you walk outside, there is an even bigger outdoor market area, with loads of vendors selling many of the same products!
