Textile Market

The textile market is a feast for the eyes, colouring itself with warm shades and different fabrics. Numerous materials, carpets, local clothes and fake international brands: the real Turkish market experience is a must-do in Bodrum and, even if you don´t intend to buy anything, there is always something to browse at.


A most-coveted travel-resort, Bodrum sees its face changing and transforming the once remote fishing village into an exclusive destination. Providing more than just awe-inspiring spectacles of its ancient past, the city caters to shopping lovers´ desires, lending a much-needed retail counterpoint to all that earnest sightseeing. Bunches of upscale boutiques rise up nearby the luxurious marina, while shopping malls, a relatively young concept in Turkey, pop up sparsely throughout the city. The sheer abundance of shops might seem satisfying enough, but true bargains lie in its rich market scene, a treasure trove of goods waiting to be discovered. "Pazar", the open market, is where your haggling skills can be tested and it is a quite common establishment in Turkey. Flea markets, clothing pazars or vegetables and fruit stalls - Bodrum is a consumer paradise.
