Visitors tasted a variety of Turkish foods, including gozleme (savoury stuffed pancakes), different styles of kebabs and a traditional Turkish breakfast at the Turkish Pazar Festival. “Pazar” means both Sunday and bazaar in Turkish.

Stalls provided the opportunity to buy a magic Turkish carpet, colorful lamp or ceramic plate, and the traditional art of paper marbling (ebru) and other arts and crafts were also on display.

The colorful and inspirational military marching band, the Ottoman Mehter Band of Melbourne, performed traditional ceremonial music used to inspire troops in battle and celebrate victories.

Organized by the Moreland Turkish Foundation, the festival hosted musicians from Turkey and Northern Cyprus, who performed Anatolian music.

The Queen Victoria Market is a major landmark in Melbourne, Australia, and at around seven hectares (17 acres) is the largest open air market in the Southern Hemisphere.
