"Spice Bazaar: More than shopping" Spice Bazaar - Egyptian Bazaar Tip by PierreZA

Spice Bazaar - Egyptian Bazaar, Istanbul: 53 reviews and 126 photos

  Spice Market
by PierreZA

A covered souq, mostly selling spices, lokum and dried fruit. Not as crowded as the Grand Bazaar, but busy. Explore the area around this bazaar where you wil find many other shops, and much cheaper.
The bazaar is in a beautiful old building.

Address: Ragip Gumuspala Caddesi, Eminonu
Directions: Fairly near Galata Bridge, on the Sultanahmet side
