Stopped in here and bought three boxes of FRESH Turkish Delight which were made upstairs from the shop. Don't think anyone spoke English but that was not an issue. Boxes of candy were packaged nicely and many friends at home were able experience some of...More

I cleverly pinned the location on my offline maps so locating Altan Sekerleme was no problem but they are slightly off the beaten track. I have to admit to being rather overawed, this is how sweet shops should be and used to be, kid in...More

If not for TripAdvisor we would not have found this place. So happy we did! Turkish delight is made upstairs from this store - owner is 4th generation maker. The Turkish delight here is incredible. It is so soft, it almost melts in your mouth....More

Altan remembered me from several years back. Naturally I came for a lot more locum. Same wonderful product - made with natural ingredients. Nice unique gifts for Christmas.

This place is totally worth to make the walk out for! The location on Trip Advisor is a little off, you need to keep walking past the first lokum (Turkish Delight) store to find it. Don't be fooled! Once you get there it's such a...More

We decided to visit this shop after reading about it online. It isn't the easiest place to find, but is worth the effort. It seems many locals are not aware of it as not one person we asked knew of its whereabouts. The place is...More

Grand Bazaar
Tourists, hawkers, and locals come together at the
Grand Bazaar to comb its labyrinthine passageways in
search of a bargain – be it a pair of brand name
jeans, a handcrafted silk rug, or a perfectly brewed
cup of tea. Outside the vast bazaar, worn, narrow
streets wind their way down from its lofty perch to
the southern shore of the Golden Horn, where the
evocatively aromatic Spice Bazaar beckons alongside

It is in Eminonu, very near the Egyptian Spice Market. You can find the market at the base of the New Mosque. The shop is through the spice market to the right, Demirtaş Mh., 34134 Fatih/İstanbul, Turkey
