STREET TRADERS

DSC02568Turkey still has many street traders who travel around selling their produce from mobile stalls or out of the back of lorries and cars. In particular there are still many itinerant fruit and vegetable vendors, as well as itinerant sellers of plants in spring. In rural areas some of these traders drive around the streets calling out their wares. Elsewhere they park in a central location and set up an ad hoc market. You can expect to find everything from fresh honeycomb to tasty special breads and even rugs being sold in this informal fashion.

Other itinerant traders include knife-grinders (bileyci), people with laminating machines for covering ID cards, tinsmiths who will tin the insides of copper pots (kalaycı), and old-fashioned scrap-metal traders (hurdacı/eskici) who collect people's old stove buckets and other paraphernalia.
