  1. Hello, I have been in Istanbul for about 1.5 years. During these days I could never buy good meat! I don't say that meats have bad taste but let's explain more. In AVMs there are two options. First the butcher second is the one you can take from the refrigerator. The second is not what I want since you don't know what it is. But, the advantage of this kind is that they do not have black color. The butcher in AVMs and personal butchers most of the times some part of the meat is black! I don't know. I paid money I expected to have good meat. Maybe it is not a problem and I am sensitive. But, in my country at least the meat has good color. Even though in my country the butcher should know you to sell you a good meat! Maybe here is the same! What should I say while buying meat? Also, what is the name of this meat I attached in turkey? I really want to have beef mea also! https://www.google.com/search?q=beef+eti&client=firefox-b-d&sa=X&biw=1360&bih=604&tbm=isch&source=iu&ictx=1&fir=1516DnvneiytWM%3A%2CR1J13xzevDmTaM%2C%2Fm%2F0971v&vet=1&usg=AI4_-kRQCXwsoF6y1zauBnzSYog7NzpcOg&ved=2ahUKEwjF5L2D87bjAhXoxMQBHXJAAroQ_B0wFnoECAkQAw#imgrc=1516DnvneiytWM:

  3. Since Turkey is a Muslim country, Pork isn't always easy to find. But some stores which sell pork can be found in the tourism cities and towns along the Aegean and Mediterranean coasts. There, the Migros and Kipa grocery stores, among others, keep gammon ham, bacon, and sausage in refrigerators separate from the non-pork meats. Unfortunately, pork is more expensive in Turkey than it probably is in your home country, and the bacon is usually higher in fat. Some tourism towns have specialty shops where you can buy much higher quality (and cheaper) pork meats. Since their clientele is almost exclusively foreign, they also have a good assortment of imported cheeses and sauces. Their prices are also better than those at the big supermarkets. See our listings of pork shops in various locations to help you find one near you. The Bacon Run to Greece A fun alternative for buying high-quality and less-expensive pork is to take a ferry, on a day trip, to one of the Aegean or Mediterranean Greek Islands. The ferries usually depart at around 9:00 AM and return at around 5:00 PM. When you land in Greece, enjoy the day. Eat and drink at the restaurants and tour the town. A couple of hours before your ferry departs for Turkey, go to a Greek grocery store, which will have an abundant selection of high-quality pork of all kinds. They'll also have cheeses which are hard to find in Turkey, such as cheddar or Emmental (Swiss) cheese. Don't forget to browse the sauces as well. Bringing Home the Bacon According to Turkish customs, you can bring back into Turkey pork which is in a vacuum-sealed bag, which will cover you for the bacon, but perhaps not for other pork which is not in vacuum-sealed bags. Customs officials have been generous to foreigners who do this bacon run in the past, but is a chance you won't be able to bring back pork in bags which are not vacuum sealed. Ask around about this before you go, or while on the ferry, since doing the monthly bacon run on the ferry is a routine part of expat life in the coastal towns. After you clear customs, take your pork home, break it down into portions, and put it in the freezer until you need it. You can do the same with cheese.

  4. Alabaster is a natural stone made of gypsum or calcite. It forms over thousands of years in water, or on the floors of caves as stalagmites. While it is white in its purest form, the sedimentary process often causes it to mix with layers of iron oxide, which create colorful bands and patterns. Alabaster can also be dyed into various colors. Since alabaster is soft enough to carve, artisans over the millennia have used it to make decorative vessels and ornaments. It is also translucent, so it is often lathed thinly enough to allow the light to shine through. Where to Buy Alabaster Alabaster ornaments, vases, and decanters are sold in shops practically everywhere in Turkey. But the best places to buy it are in Istanbul's Grand Bazaar, and in Avanos, Nevşehir province, which is in Turkey's central region of Cappadocia. How Alabaster Vessels are Made A master alabaster craftsman shows the transformation of a block of alabaster into a finished vessel. Even if you already own some alabaster pieces, this will give you a deeper appreciation for this beautiful natural stone. Care and Cleaning An alabaster vessel or ornament should only be displayed indoors. If it is left outside, its luster will degrade over time. Use only water to clean it, since harsh detergents such as dish washing liquid will instantly degrade its finish. Never allow any type of acidic liquid, like lemon juice, come into contact with your alabaster piece. See Also Shopping Forum: Have a question or comment about shopping in Turkey?

  5. If you want to order groceries online and have them delivered to your home, try the Sanal Market (virtual market) of Migros, Turkey's nationwide grocery store. You can also order from the Migros Sanal Market by phone by calling 444 1044. You can choose your delivery time and pay by credit card, debit card, or in cash. Service may be limited if you live in an area beyond their service range. Another option is GurmeNet. They offer more exotic foods, especially from the far east.

  6. Hi all i am gonna buy some goods from chinese web sites as WISH or ALIEXPRESS. We just pay the product price online and the ship it to us. it is usually possible to choose free shipping to turkey. okey. Now what will happen for delivery? does the post agent bring it to my mentioned address at my home door? Should i have to pay some more money to him? or i should go somewhere like PTT or Cargo and pay Tax or KDV or something like those to receive my box? i hope you answer me "such a delivery is completely free in turkye";-) My good is wirstwatch and bicycle bag which cost less than 100$
  7. I'm trying out Migros's online grocery ordering system for the first time. Looks great! In my neighborhood, I often can't get things I want, like big bottles of soda (I ordered a few cases of that) and spinach (which my local market has only occasionally). Since I don't have a car, I have to take a big backpack with me and lug everything back home. Now they'll just bring it all to me. I figure before long I'll be complaining about how I have to lug the groceries from the front door to the kitchen. The system wouldn't take my foreigner identification number (apparently it actually looks you up), but it did offer an option for foreigners to enter their passport number. At first the system rejected that also because it didn't have letters (I guess every country but the US has letters in their passport numbers), so I just entered USA at the beginning and that worked. I had no option but to join Migros's "Money Club" and get one of their cards, but it's a good idea anyway, since I can take advantage of periodic discounts on things. I had a few recipes I wanted to try. I opened them in a separate window and shopped the Migros Sanal Market site ingredient-by-ingredient. The system is very well-designed. It even remembers what you bought before, so you can stock up on things you usually buy. I liked everything about the Sanal Market system. I even bought a few things I didn't know I needed. When I checked out, the system offered me a couple of next-day delivery options (some were full). I chose one, as well as the option to pay cash at the door. So I will have a mass quantity of groceries and various kitchen necessities delivered to me tomorrow (even though tomorrow is Sunday), sometime between 4:30 and 6:30 PM. Here's the site if anybody is interested: http://www.sanalmarket.com.tr/
