What people say

"Mısır Çarşısı, also known as the Egyptian Bazaar, is a large covered market located in the Eminönü district of Istanbul, Turkey. It is one of the oldest and largest markets in the city, and it is a popular tourist destination. The Mısır Çarşısı was built in 1660 by the Ottoman Sultan Turhan Hatice. It was originally called the Yeni Çarşı (New Market), but it was renamed the Mısır Çarşısı in the 18th century, when it became a major center for the trade of Egyptian goods. The market is divided into two sections: the Spice Bazaar and the Dried Fruits Bazaar. The Spice Bazaar is home to hundreds of stalls selling spices, herbs, nuts, seeds, and other dried goods. The Dried Fruits Bazaar sells a variety of dried fruits, including apricots, figs, raisins, and dates. The Mısır Çarşısı is a great place to find traditional Turkish spices, such as cumin, sumac, and paprika. It is also a good place to buy dried fruits, nuts, and seeds. The market is also home to a number of restaurants and cafes, where you can sample Turkish cuisine."
"Mısır Çarşısı, or the Spice Bazaar (also called the Egyptian Bazaar), is a historic market in Istanbul's Eminönü quarter. It's famed for its vibrant atmosphere, exotic spices, teas, sweets, and more.  But the Spice Bazaar isn't just about spices or the Turkish Delight – it's also a treasure trove of Turkish culinary delights, with vendors offering an array of dried fruits, nuts, olives, and other gourmet treats. And amid the hustle and bustle, you'll discover hidden gems selling traditional handicrafts, textiles, and souvenirs, making it the perfect place to pick up souvenirs or ingredients. Local insight: Don't spend all your time and money here. Pick up a few spices, teas or Turkish delight but then get ready for Grand Bazaar to purchase any other gifts or items. Open everyday between 8:00am to 7:30pm. No entrance fee. "
"The Egyptian Bazaar, also known as the Spice Bazaar, is one of the largest bazaars in Istanbul, Turkey. It is located in the Eminönü quarter of the Fatih district, and is the most famous covered shopping complex after the Grand Bazaar. The Egyptian Bazaar was built in 1660 during the reign of Sultan Mehmed IV, and was originally used as a warehouse for spices and other goods imported from Egypt. The bazaar is named after the fact that it was built with the revenues from the Ottoman eyalet (province) of Egypt. The Egyptian Bazaar is a popular tourist destination, and is known for its wide variety of spices, herbs, teas, dried fruits, nuts, and other food items. The bazaar also has a number of shops selling souvenirs, such as Turkish delight, baklava, and traditional Turkish handicrafts. "
