Shopping at Alanya Bazaar
To get to know the Alanya Bazaar, we recommend that you read the article.
Juma Pazars (Friday Market in Alanya)
A multi-colored carnival of clothes, jewelry, lamps and ceramics, spices and fruits. Alanya Bazaar is one of the largest markets on the south coast of Turkey.
Alanya’s market stretches from Alanya’s harbor under a historic castle to the bus station in the center. It is divided into southern and northern parts by Ataturk Boulevard with many shops and cafes.
Shopping at the bazaar is an indispensable cultural experience when visiting Alanya. You can buy any souvenirs for your family and friends at home, especially clothes, watches and jewelry, charms for luck in the shape of a bracelet, magnet or cup, local pumpkins and handmade jewelry or hand-painted, leather jackets, handmade bags of hundreds of designs, shoes, water pipes, home decorations from candles to traditional Turkish carpets. You can hardly return home without traditional Turkish coffee or delicious black tea.
Price negotiations have traditionally been part of shopping at travel shops in the bazaar, but keep in mind the limitations. Quality comes at a price even in Turkey. If you avoid being rude and aggressive, you can still make good deals in the market. If you do not like to negotiate, we recommend that you visit the company stores on Ataturk Street or Alanyum Shopping Center, where you will find European prices on the label.
In addition to the daily bazaar in the center of Alanya and the surrounding area of the city, there are one-day markets for fresh fruits and vegetables. 100% fresh and healthy seasonal fruits and vegetables grown by local gardeners. Try freshly picked orange or banana, drink fresh orange and pomegranate juices. In addition, there is a selection of spices and herbal tea, a local craft product, all at very affordable prices.
