    Spice Bazaar:Nations on the spice roads not only engaged in transit trade, but inevitably made use of these commodities themselves, which is why Turkey has a significant spice culture.


    Spices were the commodity which lent momentum to the 'global' trade of mediaeval times. For long centuries caravans carried their loads of spices and silks from India and China respectively overland, while ships plied the route across the Indian Ocean to the ports of Arabia.

    On my second trip to Istanbul I was on Semester at Sea, so our ship was docked there. The area around the port is very nice to walk through. This is a pic of a mosque by the dock. You can see the fisherman selling their catches nearby. It is a short walk on to the Egyptian market where they sell spices and other things.

    THE EGYPTIAN BAAZARAnother great Baazar in Istanbul is the Egyptian Baazar. This was the place during Ottomans times, where all egyptian goods were traded in Istanbul. It was built in 1666. There are more than 80 stores. They sell from jewery to all kinds of species, herbs, and typical turkish candies.

    Please remenber to BARGAIN as much as you can. Dont buy at the first price call. Shop around before you make the final purchasing decision.

    More of an everyday market than that which attracts the tourists at the grand Bazaar, the spice or Egyptian Market is a myriad of colour and aromas of exotic and unknown spices.
