As colorful as Istanbul's Grand Bazaar, with much less sale pressure. This makes for a very enjoyable experience.

Very much smaller compare with the Grand Bazaar but there is always a surprise awaits you at every corner you make a turn

Not so agressive as grand bazar, not so high prices, nice knives and metal work, nice gold shops. If U will spend some hours and U like shopping its a right place for U. Negotiation is a base of life....

After looking at the clock tower and the lovely tiles on the mosque near it, there is nothing here for tourists. We had been to Izmir a few years ago and I had a better impression but it has 4 million people and we missed the good spots! Signs say it is the favorite destination fir European tourists for three... More

Market is big and there are many types of intersting things for both national and international tourists. Nice spot to spend time and hang around in city. There are traditional places to sit and calm down sipping some drinks as well.

Avoid weekends if you can. We went on a saturday with 2 small kids, it was tough. We went back in the week, on a sunny afternoon, and it was lovely.

Like any market around the world, but certainly far less aggressive than the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul.

Whenever I get the chance if I am in central Izmir, I escape the heat and the modern/busy Izmir by going to Kemeralti market. This is first and foremost a good market for fresh produce - even if I am not buying any I enjoy walking past the freshest fruit and vegetables. If you are shopping for clothing or accessories...

Easy to get lost in, but doesn't matter as you will eventually find a Main Street. Catering mainly to locals, as such not many shopkeepers hassling you. Some bargains to be had, especially t-shirts and shoes. A number of low priced eateries throughout the market. We had a very pleasant lunch at Doyuran Kebabs under the trees in the centre... More
