Istanbul - market impressions

Photography: Istanbul - it's all about bargainingPhotography: Istanbul market - you can get anything there

These are a few impressions from Istanbul’s famous Mısır Çarşısı – the city’ s largest ‘covered’ spice market, also known as the Egyptian Bazaar. The spice market is located centrally in the old Eminönü disctrict – the old city of Constantine.

It’s a must-see when you are in town, and stuffed with colorful spices, smelling like “1001 nights”… you can find any spice you desire, but sometimes you also stumble across unexpected items displayed next to Persian Saffron and chilly peppers.
