Northern Cyprus market schedules

Updated: 4 weeks ago

Special attention is deserved by the wandering farmer's market in Northern Cyprus. It is unique in its long history and has a rather unusual schedule of operation.

The thing is, it operates on different days in different cities. Many years ago, local farmers developed a tradition of taking their produce to nearby cities for sale. This tradition has been preserved to this day. Below, we will tell you on which days in which cities you can buy farm products.

On the shelves, you can find all kinds of fruits and vegetables grown by local farmers, various spices, nuts, and candied fruits. Be sure to pay attention to the counter with local fish and marine creatures. You will also find genuine Turkish coffee of various grinds and varieties. And also inexpensive clothes, bed linen, and even carpets.
