"Misir Carsisi" Spice Bazaar - Egyptian Bazaar Tip by WulfstanTraveller
Spice Bazaar - Egyptian Bazaar, Istanbul: 53 reviews and 126 photos
The Misir Carsisi (Egyptian Market), often called the Spice Market, is another top market visit in Istanbul. it is less crowded than the Grand Bazaar usually, and much smaller, being an L-shape. It is also geared primarily towards comestibles like tea, candy, spices, nuts, fruit leather, and the like. It is a great place to tatli sucuk ("sweet sausage"), which is a wonderful confection of walnuts strung together and covered in solidified pekmez, or fruit syrup. There are also vendors selling su boregi and the like.
Outside, to the east of it near the Yeni Cami, is the pet and nursery market, an interesting site of its own.
Address: Ragip Gumuspala Caddesi, Eminonu
Directions: Eminonu. There is an entrance gacing the Golden Horn, right next to the Yeni Cami.
