Some tips:

  • Keep in mind to eat in moderation at each stop, so you have room to try out more food. Try splitting the dishes with your partner, this way you get to taste more varieties without feeling full too soon.
  • It's recommended to visit the markets in the morning when they are less crowded and you can leisurely explore each stall.
  • Lastly, be respectful of the local culture and traditions. Remember, some vendors at these markets have been running their family businesses for decades. Their cooking methods and ingredients used are a cherished tradition, showcasing the rich culinary heritage of Turkey.
