What kinds of organic, vegetarian and allergy-friendly foods are available, such as organic produce, gluten-free products, meat substitutes for vegetarians, etc?

There is one organic market, but I missed that shopping experience. Judging by the way that everything spoils quickly in Turkey, I'd bet my bottom dollar that just about everything is organic (or damn near) anyway. You will have a hard time finding complete meals for vegetarians, though. Stick with the mezes (appetizers). - Oct 24, 2010
