One of the pleasures of returning to the village is visiting the weekly market in Mumcular. Starting very early on Sunday morning, it really is a Pazar pazar (Sunday market) and it attracts locals from a very wide area. The goods on sale are no different to those found on Bodrum market, but Bodrum has a dedicated covered market area which lacks the charm of stalls sprawling in, out and through streets.
If you are looking for material to make şelva, this is definitely the place to come and if it's the finished garment you are interested in, Sunday is the day when the best baggy trousers are on show both on the stalls and walking down the streets. .
If you are a late riser, this isn't for you. By 1pm most of the stalls are packed up and gone.
