Fresh fish preparations at the Karakoy Fish market, Istanbul

The entrance of the market is marked by a stand selling fresh vegetables, ideal to be served with the fish. All products are fresh, some of them even still alive. Several stands opened an improvised restaurant cooking fish and shrimps. People sit alongside the Bosphorus with their plate, the seagulls, cats and herons are ready to join in. Whatch your fish before it is gone.

De ingang van de markt wordt gemarkeerd door een kraam dat verse groeten verkoopt, ideaal om bij de vis te serveren. Alle producten zijn vers en sommige nog steeds in leven. Verschillende kraampjes openden een geïmproviseerd restaurant en bakken er vis en garnalen. Mensen zitten langs de Bosphorus met hun bord, de meeuwen, katten en reigers staan klaar om mee te eten. Hou je vis in de gaten voor dat hij weg is..

  5. I love all those fishing rods, and the birds sitting behind the lunchers. I would love to have lunch with a heron! So did you eat there?

  6. Wonderful variety of produce from vegetables, fruit to fish - the Heron looks on the alert for any fish pickings.

  8. Oh gosh my comment disappeared! I wonder if that cat has an owner, or if he just roams about and lives off what the tourists and shop owners feed him, or perhaps he does have a family? Great supply of fish, these are amazing photos!

  9. Are those fishing poles for rent? Sounds like it'd be a cool place to fish.
