Yes, I bought some souvenirs at the Turkish spice market. But not enough. Not. Nearly. Enough.
I may receive a commission if you purchase something mentioned in this post. More details here.
Why, oh why do I have to buy spices in jars or little packets, so far removed from their origins? One of my favorite things about shopping in Turkey was just admiring the spice shops. In these shops, you can feel, smell, and taste before you buy. The spice vendors also make special tea blends, for various conditions. So wonderful. Here is a “taste” of what I saw at a Turkish spice market in Antalya.
