The 100% Ecological Market, the first and only ecological market of the Istanbul Anatolian Side, was opened on 20 December 2009 with the protocol signed between our Municipality and Buğday Ecological Life Support Association. In addition to fruit and vegetables, some other certified ecological products such as cotton, pasta, bread, legumes, shampoo, cleaning and textile has been supplied to the citizens by the project that has been implemented to provide ecological products certified by the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs to the citizens of Kartal and to increase the knowledge and sensitivity of the citizens on ecological products. The Ecological Market, which has a wide range of products, is established on a semi-closed area of approximately 1 acre and there are a total of 200 market stalls in the Market. Ecological product manufacturers and users are brought together in this market.
