Turkey's producer of carrots
100 km west of Ankara, Beypazarı is a quaint little village that was once an ancient stop on the road from Istanbul
to Baghdad. While the town is very small, the main bazaar consists of everything from blacksmiths to bakers. The town is famous for producing 60% of Turkey's carrots, 80-layer baklava, and massive stone-oven cooked meals in cast iron, called güveç. Anyone traveling from Ankara to central Anatolia or the seaside by car, should make a stop in this welcoming burgh.
