Avoid weekends if you can. We went on a saturday with 2 small kids, it was tough. We went back in the week, on a sunny afternoon, and it was lovely.
Whenever I get the chance if I am in central Izmir, I escape the heat and the modern/busy Izmir by going to Kemeralti market.

I spent the afternoon wandering around Kemeralti Market. It was a enjoyable experience. There are lots of interesting shops to browse, tons of little restaurants, and plenty of people watching. It is fairly large and can take awhile to fully explore. I wasn't hassled too much which was nice.
If you dont visit kemeralti market when in Izmir you will not feel the heart beating of the city. Walk arround feel the turkish way of shopping, taste the turkish coffee in the traditional cafes and most important...take photos to recall moments when you are at home.
I love to shop but this was a bit much for me. There are vendors everywhere calling you in their shops. I didn't find there was anythiing there that I had to have that I couldn't find here at home in the States. Fun to walk through and experience it,

Plenty of good clean places to eat and the food is very cheap. There's a nice hand crafted wood shop that sells anything you could want made... 更多
I read on internet that this bazaar was like Istanbuls grand bazaar. It was nothing like that at all. If it is the first visit to a Turkish bazaar you would like it, but if you have been to Turkey some times you will be dissapointed of this bazaar.
