Belediye Pazari, Nicosia
The Belediye Pazari is the covered municipal market of North Nicosia. it is also known as "Bandabulya". This market was the main marketplace of the city during the Ottoman period; today it is still a lively and untouristy market, where you can buy mostly meat and vegetables. The apples we bought were very delicious and... massive.
The market is open Monday to Friday from 6 am to 3 pm, and on Saturday from 6 am to 1 pm. it is closed all day on Sunday.

Belediye Pazari is a covered bazaar, and more officially is known as the municipal market. It was built in 1932 and is quite a quaint old building once you get inside.
The stalls inside sell a range of stuff from antiques, crafts and food. It makes for quite a pleasant stroll through doing a bit of window shopping. although I cannot remember seeing anything that I considered particularly worth buying.
