    Local markets in Marmaris are selling only fruits, veg and fish. So the nearest big local market is in Mugla, it is pretty complicated to go there on your own. so we booked online with Mares Travel. Nice to see local people, local food and good opportunity to do some shopping.


    When I go on holiday, I love visiting local markets. Mugla market near Marmaris is really fun to visit. We paid 5tl for 1 kg of fresh strawberries. Spices and local food is very cheap. Would recommend you a visit if you like shopping.


    Mugla Market gives you the possibility to know the everyday life of real Turkish people. A really big choice and variety of spices, lace, good quality clothes, leather bags, purses, luxury towel and the banter with the stall holders haggling prices are great fun well worth a visit.
