Fethiye market runs along two sides of a canal (or really well walled-in river), and is covered by huge tarpaulins and tents that make it hard to see out once you're inside. Not that you would want to, when there's so much produce to attend to, but it's easy to get disoriented. The prices for fresh fruit and vegetables in Turkey are quite low, and there's an interesting array of spices, nuts, and snacks on display. Yoghurt is sold from huge vats, and cheeses are carved from the block or - in the case of soft goats cheese - scraped out of goat-skin bags. Definitely a fun place to wander, and after we'd picked up some groceries we stopped to enjoy stuffed pancakes for lunch, which made the day even better.
