I´m visiting Istanbul together with a friend from the 5th to 15th of April.
We have no special reason to go there, and no real plans except for strolling around and eating well.
Now, I really don´t want to plan too much, but I´d be really interested on what food / fish / whatever will be seasonal at that time of the year. Especially because we rented a flat with a kitchen for the purpose of doing some cooking of our own, with the (we hope) great exceptional ingredients form the Markets.
We rented an apartment in Beyoglu is there a specific market in that area anyone could suggest?
Is there one seafood market (wherever) we should visit?
Also, I´ve been interested in fermentation for some time now, and would be interested in local fermented food (like Şalgam)
I´m just in the process of reading my way through the istanbul eats blog, so I think I´m good when it comes to restaurant suggestions.
thanks so much, best,
