Altinkum Market

We have a few markets now, a new Monday market is on just 200 yards from our place , but seeing as we were out of potatoes , we went to the big Saturday market
What I normally do, seeing as my legs are shot, is sit on the bike while Kath goes a few trips round the stalls gathering various foodstuffs , she dropped the potatoes off with me and went back to a different part of the market for some lemons, leeks and bananas
When she got back, we put them in the wire basket on the bike and went home . As I was putting the cover on the bike, she came back out and said she'd forgotten to pick up the bananas after paying for them , so off back to the market we toddled
I waited on the bike and after a good 15 minutes , Kath came back fuming .....She had gone back to the stall, explained what happened and the stallholder denied selling her the bananas which were back on top of the pile
Kath enlisted the help of a Turk who spoke good English and with his help insisted she did buy and pay for the bananas , which were 5 lira and Kath had counted all her small change out
The stallholder was adamant , so she told the guy helping she would tell all her friends not to use that stall , the woman wasn't bothered

All that over the profit she made on 5 lira.....unbelievable
