Istanbul – Spice Bazaar

Spices, Spice Bazaar, Istanbul

The Spice Bazaar in Istanbul is just like the Grand Bazaar a huge covered market. The difference between the two is that they mostly sell spices at the Spice Bazaar and things like tea, sweets, nuts and dried fruits.

Spice Bazaar, Istanbul
Nuts and dried fruits
Fruit Candy
Spices and tea

The sellers know how to promote their stuff. Besides the regular jasmin tea, apple tea and hibiscus tea, they also had ‘love’ tea and ‘lose weight’ tea, hahah. They also had lots of dried fruits like mango, kiwi, melon, pomelo and cherry. They use it in their tea or just to eat it. We mostly got sweets to treat our friends and spices to cook.

Soap towers
Soap Jenga
Colourful soap bars

At the Bazaar, they had many different kinds of soap bars. So pretty and so much choice! Different scents, colours and they all had different benefits. I liked many of the scents, but chose only 3 soap bars in the end, including 2 for friends. Jasmin is my favourite scent all time!

Lampions at  Spice Bazaar, Istanbul

They also had these pretty lamps at the Spice Bazaar and not expensive at all: 5 lyra is about 1,80 euros.
