The Second Hand Book Bazar must have been here in Beyazit for a very long time. It was an important cultural centre because books were printed here. So the bust exhibited in the market shows the man who printed the first book in Turkey.
I loved this small but very worthwhile market. Haggling is not really the thing here, prices are written on products, and in my experience, a cash discount was either offered by the seller or agreed if I could pay in Turkish Lira. Most of the...More
It's a place where people who love books are still unable to come by. This place was much more popular in the past. You could find here especially old books, second hand books that you could not find in any bookstore. It's not much of...More

This area is very near from the Istanbul university, so they sell many books and textbooks. Many of them are written in Turkish, and the customers seem almost all students. There is a fountain in the middle of the square. You can't drink the water,...More

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
the elegant New Mosque (opened in 1665). Nearby, the famed Galata Bridge offers pedestrian access to urban delights across the river in Istanbul’s more residential and contemporary neighbourhoods, while the must-see sights of Sultanahmet are but a leisurely stroll away.

I think you are talking about the book market, near the Grand Bazaar. I was there in June and the book market is most definitely still there. Some wonderful things there. If you're coming from Sultanahmet and get off at the tram stop for the Bazaar, go towards the entrance to the Bazaar, and right before you enter the Bazaar, you'll see a lane on the left, leading to the book market. It's quite concealed but it is there!
