That the Alanya region has an abundance of fruit, vegetables and anything from the sea, gets very clear at these markets, and if u visit the market halls close to the Anadolu Hospital (former known as Can Hospital) at the center of Alanya. There are two areas here, one is engross and the other is dedicated to private use, so everyone can come and buy fresh fruit, meat etc.
So we recommend a visit there, and also try some of the smaller restaurants around town where you get to choose what fresh fish you wish to eat.
