Strolling through

Used to be my favorite place to walk around in Izmir, it has changed tremendously over the years, but still nice shops remain. You may find anything there from food to buttons.

Big market with many small and bigger shops hidden food gems and Turkish everyday life experiences within a maze of small streets. A must see when you visit Izmir. Watch your bags!

You can find a lot of shops at this area, but nice oriental atmosphere is out already. It is possible to buy so called turkish genuine fakes as copies of well-knowned marks of watches and shoes and dresses.

One can find anything at any price in Kemeralti. If it is not here, it doesn't exist in Turkey. Warning: at the Kodak entrance you will pass by a army of hackers who volunteer to take you to a shop that sells carpets or leather goods. The other warning is that it is easy to get lost in the labyrinth... More

If you visit Izmir and you don't go in Kemeralti is like not being in Izmir. Kemeralti is the bustling pazar of Izmir, with all kinds of shops. Always crowdy there, you definitely need a map or otherwise you may get lost in this labyrinth. You can always use as a landmark the Hisar mosque. If you want to have... More

A fascinating busy maze of stalls beyond just the covered market should not be missed. Just wander around and soak up a real Turkish bazaar

I think there were many more areas in this Bazaar than I had time to visit. I bought two beautiful pieces of jewelry from Martin that are exquisite. It a good market.

We had a lot of recommendations to visit this bazaar. There were lots of nooks and crannies: go right-left-straight. I encourage you just to wander. You can't really get lost. There was none of the verbal encouragements you get at the Istanbul Grand Bazaar. This was a place real people go to shop. Clothes, jewelry, spices and dried good, wedding... More

Traditional market place with many cultural attractions. Numerous shops with unlimited choices at budget prices. Hardly tries to keep its popularity against big and ugly shopping malls.
