You may have already visited some of the lovely markets (known here as Pazar or Bazar) dotted about in Didim and enjoyed haggling to get a great bargain on a handbag, jewellery or pair of shoes, but until you’ve visited the Night Market in Mavişehir, you don’t know what you’re missing! You’ll not be aware of how much pleasure you’ll get from the bargains you can haggle for on quality goods and other delights that await you there.
Not only will you feel more relaxed as you browse, you’ll notice the stall holders are much more friendly, helpful and welcoming without the pressure you often feel at some other markets. They too want you to enjoy your time at Mavişehir Night Market so you’ll want to return again and again. There are a great variety of souvenirs, clothes, footwear, jewellery, watches, clocks, art, hand made wooden and other crafts, plus a few other types of stalls. You will also find fresh grown local fruit and veg, many types of olives, honey on the comb, cheeses, herbs and spices, sweets and deserts, cafés and a few restaurants close by.
Some people choose to shop first and then relax over a magnificent romantic sunset dinner along the seafront in one of the many fresh fish restaurants that await hungry locals and tourists alike, while others come for the sunset and dining first before they shop.
If you are a romantic, you can also enjoy sitting or take a walk on the Love Ship (Aşk Gemisi) which you’ll notice on the right hand side of the sea front next to the restaurants. You could even sit there with your loved ones in the evenings and watch the sunset together, take photos, videos and create some wonderful lasting memories of your time spent here.
The tea shops get very busy and it is not unusual to see young lads running from stall to stall with silver trays laden with tea cups. There are also food stands serving traditional Turkish food such as kebabs, sweetcorn or Gözleme. If you like tasting new flavours, opt for kokoreç; street food consisting of lamb intestine and spices.
