|what a sight: a huge basket of kuşburnu/rosehips|
|the last above were soooo sour ....you're supposed to eat the dark ones|
|it's the season for mushrooms: boxes and boxes of them everywhere|
I bought some to try

|a çay vendor with his çaydanlıks at the ready - when the market is over, he closes up the doors and trundles his cart away|
|an old woman selling poultry|
|ducks were 30TL each but my special price: 25TL! no, I didn't buy one|
|the most fantastic jams and molasses including chestnut honey|

|another portable stand this time selling nohutlu pilav/ rice with chickpeas|
Next time we'll go earlier and buy some of that delicious bread, cheese, and a selection of jams along with tomatoes, cucumbers and olives, not forgetting a few of those fresh eggs, and take it all home for a huge family breakfast!
|this woman was having hers right there - she invited us to join her!|
The Kastamonu market is easy to find so you can do the same: it's located in Dolapdere/Kasımpaşa, right behind the BP Petrol Station. Parking isn't a problem as there is a large carpark right there.
See you there!
