Marmaris Village Market
5 July @ 8:00 am - 6:30 pm
No need to travel to natural products expos or food festivals as Marmaris village markets are a firm favourite among the local community as well as the foreigners and holiday makers. In the past Marmaris was all about agriculture and fruit gardens. Local families used to grow vegetables and fruits, to sell these at Mugla market. This was the main income for Marmaris communities only a few decades ago, before tourism spread out. It is still important to grow more of our own food here in Marmaris and nearby villages. Sadly the agricultural lands gave way to residential and tourist buildings. Yet the soil is still very good and some of the fruit gardens are still around.
The village markets in Marmaris begin at around 8AM and continue until late afternoon. You need to be well equipped with a folding shopping cart (larger grocery bag on wheels) and some cash in hand. Villagers love metal money and coins, as it buys them bread on the way back.
