Shopping in Icmeler
Turkey is renowned as a great place to pick up some real bargains when it comes to shopping, including some good quality ‘fake’ designer name items. Shopping in Icmeler is a little lower key than nearby Marmaris but this popular little coastal town still offers its fair share of shops and a market.
Where to Shop in Icmeler
Shopping in Icmeler is usually a fun and pleasant experience and there’s a good selection of shops and stalls where you can buy a large range of items, including souvenirs of your holiday in Icmeler. There’s the weekly market, a supermarket and numerous small shops selling all sorts.
Wednesday is the weekly market day and the ideal place to come to pick up some real bargains. The sellers expect you to haggle with them, so never pay the first price you’re quoted as you can expect to buy goods at a third off what they first tell you. The haggling is all part of the fun experience and the sellers are all good natured and ready to have a laugh with you, so don’t feel intimidated by it!
At Icmeler Market you can buy delicious fresh produce, clothes, shoes, jewellery, sun glasses, souvenirs, and local handicrafts.
