Also called Balik Pazari, this is supposed to be 'the' fish market in Istanbul. It doesn't have huge number of stores, around 20, but it does offer a pretty impressive selection of edible marine life, as well as another 10 or so vendors selling things to accompany your fish. Whole and on ice is the way to display here, which is interesting or grizzly, depending which way your tastes lie.

Pretty popular with visitors, which means it's now easy to pick up something to snack on right then and there.
