Istanbul culinary tour and Spice Market
The Spice Bazaar (or Egyptian Bazaar) is one of the oldest bazaars in the city. It is the second largest covered shopping complex after the Grand Bazaar. The bazaar was, and still is, the center for spice trade in Istanbul. The building itself is part of the külliye of Yeni Mosque, and rents from the shops within was intended to help pay for the upkeep of the mosque.
