Selcuk market is in my humble view a lot more atmospheric than Kusadasi - and cheaper- although if you're buying a fair lot it is awkward to transport produce back to Kusadasi .

Yes a much better market than Kusadasi located now in that multi car park type place.

Since moving the market to under Carrefores I have not visited. The thought makes me feel nauseous!
I agree Selcuk is better but like everywhere if they think you're a holiday maker they will chance their arm ...

I actually think the produce market under Carrefour works well on s practical level - but the whole atmosphere is gone- it's now like an open air extension of s supermarket. But it's cool in the heat of a hot summers day and easy to navigate and I know where I can get what I want from smallholders that I use all the time. But I do miss the Tuesday market- more than the Friday one which was even more haphazard.
Now the textile market is a different story - imho-it's brutal- I'd sooner pay higher prices - just - and shop in the shops on town- there is no atmosphere in that textiles market other than a kind of strange almost "we couldn't care less" kind of attitude from the stall holders - and most of my favourite go - to stalls have disappeared- although when I go to selcuk they're there so I haven't totally lost out!

Another good one is Guzelcamli
Take the leisurely boat trip from the Ketchup restaurant at the marina and come back on the bus ... a lovely experience. If you don't want to go to the market buses meet the boat in Guzelcamli and take you to the National park.
Last year the fare one way was 5ytl. İt is so leisurly transfer and coffee served on board. Recommended....
