Çarşı

Misir Çarşısı, Istanbul
Also there is a “shop complex” covering a few streets and called Çarşı. The very best example of them is the Balık Pazarı in Istanbul and Sakarya Çarşısı in Ankara. You meet several shops selling the same good. We are sure you first will be shocked by the liveliness, color, and the hullabaloo of the sellers but the other thing we are sure of is that shopping from the Çarşı's will be one of your unbearable pleasures.

Kapalı Çarşı is the most popular covered bazaar. The Mısır Çarşısı, an old covered bazaar at Eminönüwill lead you a different world by the spice sellers of hundreds of different spice, Caviar shop, dried fruit sellers, baskets made of wicker splints or canes, various old Turkish and Ottoman objects. Just next to it there is a Çiçek Pazarı (Flower-market) settled at an open space area. You can find thousands of flower and vegetable seeds, agricultural chemicals, house and garden flowers, fruit and decorative trees, various kinds of birds, fish, cats and dogs.

The busy flea markets in Istanbul and Ankara offers you an astonishing assortment of goods, both old and new. Everyday presents new opportunities to poke about Sahaflar Çarşısı and Çınaraltı just near Covered Bazar in Beyazıt area and at Zafer Pasajı in Kızılay.

The Super Markets, Carrefour, Gima, Macro, Migros, Şok, Tansaş, are open every day from 09:00 or 10:00 to 20:00 or 22:00. Most of these markets are also open during the holidays, except the first day of religious fests. These markets usually have 15 days promotion periods and some goods are really cheap during these periods. The list of the goods subject to sale are either listed at the entrance of the market or submitted to you in a printed piece of paper. They have also customer cards, offering different advantages and of course all credit cards are accepted

Migros, Tansaş and Gima have web sites at internet for on-line shopping: however these sites are Turkish but they bring all the goods you ordered to your home or any other address given. Therefore if you don't want to waste time on daily or weekly shopping now it's time for you to learn some Turkish to save time!

The only cash-and-carry wholesale market is Metro. You can also find do-it-yourself, hardware department stores like Bauhaus, Praktiker, Tekzen and Koçtaş.
