"Spice bazaar" Spice Bazaar - Egyptian Bazaar Tip by mvtouring

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

We loved visiting the spice bazaar. It is not as crowded as the grand Bazaar and the shop owners allow you to look at the stuff without presurising you to come into their shops etc. The products on sale here are also quite different from what you will find at the Grand Bazaar. A very interesting place to visit. Our guide told us that all locals come here to shop.

Address: Ragip Gumuspala Caddesi, Eminonu
