- There’s no better way to start your Bodrum Holiday than by having your first stop be at a local Turkish market. Most towns on the Bodrum Peninsula hosts a weekly market, and the Yalikavak Market, held every Thursday, is a bustling mix of locals and tourists.
- Turkish Delight makes a great gift but it has to be fresh. So if you’re buying some from the market, make sure it’s wrapped up to keep it soft.

- There’s all sorts of little trinkets and souvenirs at Yalikavak Market, most of which are mass-produced. There’s always room in your suitcase home for an glass evil eye bead or wall hanging, but take care when buying the small pottery items.
