Bodrum, one of the most beautiful tourist attractions in Turkey, is also one of the most important coastal areas in the nation. Due to its strategic location, it has drawn a lot of tourists who may now stay in one of its hotels, take tours of its areas, lanes, and historical places, and buy in its markets and ancient bazaars, which we shall examine in the paragraphs that follow.
The Yalikavak Market, whose bazaar stalls have been open every Thursday for the past 43 years, is about 30 minutes’ drive from Bodrum, a coastal city. Yalikavak Market on Thursdays is a well-liked tourist site on the western and northern areas of the Bodrum Peninsula. The municipality chose to further separate bazaar days on the market in 2016 due to the market’s ongoing expansion.
Bodrum Bazaar Market
One of the most appealing markets in the city, Bodrum Bazaar is a favourite with lovely sea views. Before exploring the market, visitors can visit a popular café or restaurant to enjoy the greatest meals and drinks. The market contains a range of necessities and goods, such as apparel, leather goods, watches, and other stuff. The Bodrum market is open twice a week: on Tuesdays you may shop for clothes, and on Fridays you can buy fresh produce.
With the reopening of Bitez Market in the picturesque city of Bodrum in March 2017, the completion of the new market’s construction, which permitted stall owners to return to their original locations for two years after the market ceased functioning, marked a commercial turning point for the better. The little Bitez market benefits both the locals of the Bitez region and the Konacik region. The market opens on Thursday.
