The Covered Market

The Covered Market | Nicosia

No Turkish town is complete without a market and the Nicosia market lives up to all expectations. It is easy to find, being very close to the Selimiye mosque and is an Aladdin’s emporium of everything imaginable. From cheap plastic combs and disposable razors, to basket ware, silverware, clothing, fresh vegetables in astounding variety, meat stalls, dried fruit and nuts, and of course the one comestible that everyone should take back as a souvenir, delicious Turkish Delight.

Lavinia Neville Smith first came to North Cyprus in 1995, and fell in love with the country and the Turkish Cypriot people. A self confessed dilettante, with a varied working career, it was not until she returned in 1997 and went into tourism that she was able to put to good use her knowledge of history, ancient and modern, acquired long ago at school. She is a co-author of the Landmark Visitors Guide to North Cyprus, and continues to promote this beautiful country as far afield as possible.
