Istanbul in april (seasonal dishes / fermentation / neighbourhoods)

tobiask | Mar 17, 2013 06:03 PM

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,
