In my last post I told you about the weekly market in my neighborhood, Mecidiyeköy. Today, I want to share some pictures I took at my last visit. You can find these weekly markets in most of the neighborhoods in Istanbul.
Maybe 5 minutes from my flat there is a market every Sunday, where you can’t only buy fresh vegetables and fruits, but also dairy products, eggs, legumes, nuts, dried fruits, spices, kitchen tools and even clothes. It’s my favorite place to buy vegetables, fruits and dairy products, because they’re always fresh, from local farmers and you can find seasonal variations.
These melons look not really appealing to me, but the taste is really sweet and refreshing, you can compare it with a honeydew melon. And they are the last products of this season.
You can pick products on your own most of the time, you put them into bowls and the seller weighs them.
This booth, run by father and son, is one of my favorites at the market. At first I only bought cheese and olives there, but then they recommended also homemade butter from the Black Sea Cost and its one of the best I ever tasted.
Have fun while exploring the markets in your neighborhood, I would like to know about your experiences.
