Today I went to the new sited Tinky Market.

For those of you who dont know its been moved its is now over near the bus station in Didim,on the road by the pink hospital.

Well I now think its horrid.I used to love rambling backwards and forwards along the side streets of the old market weaving in and out tripping over everybodies shopping trollies.The atmostphere was wonderfull you'd sit in one of the little cafes for a coffee and watch the people walking buy ,the calls of the traders trying to flog you 4 t shirts for a Tenner.!!!


Now its all under cover ,the stalls are smaller, just up and down in aisles the stall holders seem scared to shout out their wares,the prices have gone up and it seems more catered for the tourist.!!!! I cannot believe Ive been there and bought nothing.!!!!!!!

There are no nice little cafes to people watch any more and it seemed so hot under the cover.

Am I the only person thinking this or is there any body that actually likes the new site and layout.???????

Just been speaking to some people from England today who also agree with me that Tinky Market is now pants.!!!!!

I have been to Soke market which is also under cover however that see
ms to have a bit more of a Turkish feel to it.

I have also been to Kusadasi Market which I thought was very nice as that sort of rambled up the streets.

Are there any more typically turkish markets in around the Bodrum area as Altinkum definatly has the thumbs down from me.(Also which days they operate)

Errr wheres "Tinky" in flippin toytown? We love the market bright spacious airy and undercover. Nothing to trip over clean set out stalls more choice, prices around the same, cheaper than the supermarkets. Come wintertime no puddles on the tarpaulins soaking you. Its still early days and no doubt it will improve for the teashops. I for one love the new market as loads of other permanent residents we know here do.
Great improvement and we hated the stinky fish stalls which have been left behind!!! O and there are decent loos there as well. Lots of less hasstle and more police prescence.

Being a permanent resident myself sadly I am not in agreement this market has definatly gone down in my estimation.!!!!

The stinky fish stalls were great and the fish was so fresh and cheap on there.There is
definatly not better choice its all geared for the tourist football t shirts in abundance and trinket stalls.Where are the GOZLEME ladies????

Ow and by the way Tinky is affectionatly what the locals call ALTINKUM.

Well we are locals and definately do not call it Tinky neither do any of our friends. Football, designer shirts and trinket stalls were always there they are just all lumped together now and if you want the fish its still at the old market. The Pancake ladies will be back and there was some in one of the cafes closeby.

In our estimation it has gone considerably up market

Strange, but I too am a permanent resident in Didim and apart from these pages have never heard of "tinky" or, come to think of it, "mavi".

Is this some form of deranged 'aky' speak?

A couple of TURKISH local
ladies on my sitesi affectionatly say they are doing Tinky.
Think it has probably been brought about by us ex pats tho.
