In my last blog I told you about the new Spice Goodie I had found at a local grocery store, Last week in Istanbul, Turkey, We actually got to see the REAL DEAL: I'd like to share some pictures we took of Spice Bazaar, You'll know when you are getting close to the Bazaar because your nose will tell you, when you are about 2 to 3 blocks out!
It doesn't take long to stroll through the Spice Market & If you have never seen anything like this it is definitely worth the trip! (Closed Sunday)
The building itself is part of the Yeni Mosque (completed 1660), The shops rented within the Mosque help pay for the upkeep. The Spice Bazaar is in an L Shaped building, consisting of 88 vaulted rooms, The main entrance is in the southwest corner, facing the Yeni Mosque.
