Let me tell you some bazaar information;
The Grand Bazaar in Istanbul is one of the largest and oldest covered markets in the world, with 61 covered streets and over 3,000 shops which attract between 250,000 and 400,000 visitors daily. Here you can buy carpets, lamps, pottery, jewelry, clothing and accessories. The bazaar is very clean, orderly and rather expensive.
Outside of the Grand Bazaar you will find the open air market called Uzunçarşı Caddesi. Numerous steep and narrow streets (believe me, we drove through it with the huge van and it was nerve racking) selling everything from zippers to flowers to computer parts. The market basically links the Grand bazaar and the Egyptian Market.
The Egyptian Market is Istanbul’s spice market. The shop owners are really friendly and let you try all kinds of treats.
