Supermarkets + Food Requirements

We always rent self-catering so we can fix our own food. What are Kalkan supermarkets like? How easy is to to get basics like fresh milk, cooked meats, European cheeses, jams, mayo, butter? Are there any things that are rarely/never available?

The supermarkets are good and have a wide choice. Jam, mayo, butter are all easily available. Cooked meats are expensive and more salami type, they don't do ham or pork products, and we take some in an ice bag in our suitcase. Fresh milk is usually available (red top, don't mix it up with Arrian, which has a blue top) in Yali supermarket, you do find the odd day when there isn't any, most Turks buy long life. Most cheese is Turkish, rather than European.

We used Yali supermarket most of the time, a very good selection.

For fresh friut and veg we used the grocers shop a bit further down, I could not believe how cheap it was. And apparently the market is even cheaper, but thats only once a week Thursday)

Your English brands are all there in Yali, but you will pay more, we stuck to the Turkish brands which were just as good...Oh apart from teabags...forgot to take any so ended up buying Twinings breakfast tea!!!

There is even a place called Kipa, a branch of Tesco..they sell some value products...lol, I was really suprised : )

In Istanbul you will find (nearly)anything you need. There are a big variety of supermarkets and grossmarkets everywhere.
