Egyptian Bazaar (Spice Bazaar) - Istanbul


Il Gran Bazar a  Istanbul

It is in Eminönü and is also a covered bazaar, is a lot smaller than Grand Bazaar, and as its name implies, houses herbalist and spice shops.
Although somewhat tainted by touristic creep, this market can easily transport you back to its Ottoman heyday with the kaleidoscopic colours of its mounds of saffron, chilli, herbal teas and lokum (Turkish delight).
