Bread street vendors are all over Istanbul.

It's the cheapest way to have a lunch.

Some use a cart which keeps the bread a bit protected from the environment.

Others sell bread from a stick; these sellers also sell in this way at the highways.

What to buy: Bread rolls.

    good to see that most of them have now a covered wagon for selling them. 30 years ago they were all on baskets that had been carried around ! They tasted fine anyway !

      The guys with Sesame rings on a stick who roams the highways during traffic jams amazed me the most. PJ
