Sunday Scenery : Fethiye Market, Turkey

Fresh markets around the world depict the culture and traditions of the local area in detail. I have always enjoyed experiencing the life of a local by wandering through local markets. Vendors, artisans, and farmers travel from surrounding areas to offer up their goods. Each country, each city, each town have their own days of the week – in addition to brick and mortar shopkeepers and supermarkets.

In Fethiye, there are 3 days each week where vendors gather and offer their goods. Each day the market meets in a different area of town. Tuesday, Saturday and Sunday markets buzz with activity. Funny enough the vendors encouraged me to take photos of them or their goods. Especially the fresh produce vendors, they seemed proud of their fruits and vegetables and loved the attention.

Whatever you may need for daily life, will be found inside the market. Wander through the market with me.
