Find out about Mahmutlar Markets and Fresh Produce.
Mahmutlar is surrounded by large areas of farmland. There are banana fields, orchards and mountain villages where the most amazing fruit and vegetables are grown.
Virtually every day of the week there are street markets. There is an abundance of fresh produce for sale. On the weekend the big Saturday market is held in the town’s market square.
Locals, foreign residents and visitors all flock to this market. They stock up with the tastiest fresh fruit you could ever hope to buy.
Prices for ‘in season’ fruits are very low, as a consequence and there is no excuse not to be eating your 5 a day.
Choose fruit that is in season, its tastier, healthier and cheaper
Choose ugly fruit – they are the tastiest fruit of all
Enjoy a tasty gozleme, like a big pancake, as you walk around the market – sooo nice
If you want to try some specialist Turkish cheeses this is the place to do it as most vendors will let you taste a selection so you choose the right one for you.
