Inebolu Market

A little over a year ago, I first went to the Inebolu Market with Anna and Sarah. We woke up at 5 in the morning to get there in time to get the good stuff, and before it closed. Now, due to popularity, it is open until 4pm, making the 11 hour drive many of the vendors make from the Black Sea, worth it in my opinion.

I don’t know what it is about this place but it really stays with you. The piles of bread, the live chickens squawking, water bottles full of milk, and delicious, colorful produce – you can find this at the supermarkets, and the prices are unbeatable as well.

If you come to Istanbul, I highly recommend a visit. It is open on Sundays and located on Toprak Tabya Sok, just opposite from Sururi Park in Kasimpasa. It’s about a 8 lira taxi ride from Taksim.

I don’t know what this is but it was like a sweet radish, with the texture of a tough watermelon. I don’t think I’ve ever seen something natural with such a color!

I took Sam there and he just couldn’t stop himself from buying a lot.
