The old part of Midyat has its own bazaar area or market starting from the back street of the clock tower where most of the jewelry stores can be found.
There are a lot of shops inside covered bazaars or pasaji (passage) selling clothing, shoes, bags, cosmetics, household appliances and furnitures. The old town also has its discount supermarkets like BIM which is near the hotel I was staying.
Ironically – at least to me – the old midyat market area looks more modern that the market in Estel (new Midyat).
What to buy: All kinds of stuff.
If you want to observe more local scene, go to the market of Estel (the new town). A lot of buying and selling takes place there. An old lady selling her live sheeps, vegetable sellers, spices, crops, clothing shops, jewelries, and all stuff.
The street near the Estel Hani is where you’ll find a lot of fresh produce and spices.
What to buy: Fresh produce, spices, jewelries, electronics, etc.
