Grand Bazaar

An immense bazaar selling all kinds of items, food and gifts. Immerse yourself in the crowd and among locals as you browse the various stalls. If you're not a fan of crowds it is advised to go very early or towards closing time.


First, a brief warning: Marmaris is a big tourist destination, so you have to keep an eye on high prices and fake versions of branded goods. For instance, check that you can actually change the batteries of a watch, or it will be an expensive throwaway. Haggling is also essential. That said, it can still be a lot of fun just to wander around the bazaar that stretches over several blocks in the town centre. You will find carpets, leather jackets, tablecloths, pirated designer goods and souvenirs are all kinds. At the local market (Thursdays in Marmaris and Fridays in Içmeler) you can buy also fresh products and spices.
