Urla-Izmir / Turkey Food Market –

What a color , what a choice, what a harmony and aroma, I am talking about Food Markets. I loose myself , I can not decide where to look, what to take, like small spoilt children who is in toy shop and surrounded with lots of choice. I do love visiting food markets, people are so friendly and you can make conversation easily, they ask you what do you going to do with those pictures and back I ask them the name of the plants which I never seen before. Fascinating so interesting. Food is a bridge between people does not matter where you come from after 10 minutes they tell you their life stories or their anger with their politicians. They are so proud what they sell and they insist you taste their food with a glass of Turkish tea. Here is some pictures from Urla food market, seaside town of Izmir on Aegean side of Turkey.
