Spice Market

The Egyptian Market

Spices, dried fruits, nuts and seeds, lokum (Turkish Delight), most of the shops in Istanbul's Misir Çarsisi.

Hasircilar Caddesi, running west from the market building, is particularly colorful, with lots more shops selling spices, snacks and housewares.

Situated at the southern end of the Galata Bridge on the Golden Horn in the Eminönü district, right next to the Yeni Cami (New Mosque).
