Feel free! this bazaar makes you feel free. If you are a tourist and know Turkish talk Turkish. they trick the ones who talk English. Make sure your bag is there. Only problem there is this! Shops, road or price: No Problem! But, don't be a fool and look everywhere! Spices are awsome and decorations are superb! I love that place. I lost my bag:D Still I love there.

spices on the little streets around the bazaar are 50% cheaper! and i'm sure the quality is the same. however, you can enjoy a good cup of tea and a round of bargaining if you like it..

Inside the Bazaar are the same kind of stores you'll find at the Grand Bazaar, but I thought the prices were a bit higher here. What you pay does depend on your bargaining skills, of course. But, overall, similar things were available. If you go, however, take a few minutes to look through the stalls along the outside of the Bazaar. I was there on a Saturday morning, and that area was absolutely crammed with locals, buying their meats, cheeses, nuts, etc. This is not entirely a tourist trap, it's where lots of locals do their shopping, and that can be very interesting, too.

This Spice Market is worth a visit, with its colourful stands. There are carpet, souvenirs and spice stands with all one can ask for. Note that they are charging foreigners way over the real price, so do not forget to bargain for a good price. Great fun.
