- What’s On
The place for sausages on Istanbul’s Anatolian side, situated in the vibrant Kadıköy fish market.
Not as busy as some of its European side counterparts, the Kadıköy market is a pleasure to explore and has some serious foodie magnets: Ecevitler (No 12) has a wide range of cheeses from across the country, Etabal (No 28) is the venerable honey shop, Ulaş Baharat (No 14) are your spice specialists and Melodi (No 17) makes artisan chocolates for all us sweet tooths. Around the corner on Yasa Caddesi, you will find Şekerci Cafer Erol (No 19), with its inventive marzipan, and Beyaz Fırın (No 23), where almond-filled shortbread crescents (bademli ay çöreği) are delicious with a coffee at a tiny table in the square.
