Pınar Pazarı

Market in Eğirdir

On Sundays between August and October, you can buy apples, cheese, yoghurt or even a goat at this village market run by the Yörük Turks, who descend from their mountain redoubts to hawk their wares and stock up for winter. In the old days, wily Yörük mothers would use these public events to negotiate marriages for their children. Pınar is 7km southeast of Eğirdir, served by dolmuş (₺2.25).
