There are daıly markets spread around Fethıye of which the Tuesday market ın town is the bıggest and most popular.  The smaller Sunday version in Calis is a peculiarly British affair due to the large number of expats living in the area and functions as a meeting place and social occasion.  You are liable to hear more English spoken than Turkish but the goods on sale remain the same.  We rarely need stuff other than fresh food from the markets so do most of our shopping at the Fethiye farmers market on Friday, however last week I travelled to Calis purely to obtain ideas for some street paintings.  If you come to Fethiye, be sure not to miss one of these mediterranean markets, the experience is definitely one to savour.
