This bazaar owes its name to the fact that it once not only received income taxes from Egypt, but was also specialised in the sale of spices, herbs and medicinal plants and drugs. Although there are still some shops that sell spices and herbs (the smell will strike the visitor immediately when entering the bazaar ), the picture has changed a bit. There are also some souvenir shops now, shops that are specialised in aromatic oils and essences, sweet shops which sell the famous turkish delight, dried fruit, nuts, teas and Turkish coffee. The Egyptian Spice Bazaar is located in Eminonu, right next to the New Mosque and close to the ferry ports.
