The market district has much more than prepared food—if you need any housewares, rugs, leather products, spices, dried fruits, and birds—Konak is where you want to be. Below is a sampling of just some of the street food you can find there, a representative (though not exhaustive) sample of what you can eat on the street across Turkey. You can find stands selling simit and pide on side streets and busy city roads, and they're often packed with locals who know the best food (and the cheapest) isn't necessarily in a restaurant. And while some of these street foods are new, most of them have been part of Turkish culture for centuries. Because there's so much to eat, the best piece of advice for finding street food in Izmir is to just let it happen. Follow every little alley to the end, try everything, and don't freak out if the buses don't drop you off where you thought they would.
