If you are looking for a supermarket to shop for in Turkey, you are in the right place.
I compiled all the popular grocery shopping websites in Turkey, plus, As a Turkish local, I will give all the tips you need.
Whether you are looking for a supermarket in Istanbul or anywhere in Turkey, this guide will help you.
Without further delay, Let’s start.
Online Supermarket and Grocery Shopping in Turkey
Here is the short guide for each grocery shopping website in Turkey.
- Trendyol allows you to buy all supermarket products and more. You can buy Migros and Happy Center supermarket products in Trendyol. The most variety of products is here. This is my first choice. You can also shop directly from Migros.
- A101, Carrefour, and Macrocenter are the biggest supermarket chains in Turkey, but they are different. You can get cheaper products from A101. Macro Center, on the other hand, is a market that includes luxury segment foods.
- Ciceksepeti is another place where you can do grocery shopping. Ciceksepeti also allows you to send all kinds of food gifts to your beloved one.
- Yemeksepeti, Banabi, and Getir are good choices for fast food and supermarket shopping. They are the leader in the speed category.
- Boyner Gourmet offers gourmet products that you cannot find anywhere else.
- Watsons is a website where you can buy almost all non-food supermarket products.
- Hepsiburada is an alternative to Trendyol.
If you want more details, I have compiled all these in the list below. I hope it will be useful to you.
Before I start writing my reviews, I want to point out the language problem. The biggest problem for foreigners in Turkey when shopping online is the language barrier. Most of the shopping sites do not have English language support.
Yet, there is a solution to this problem. I explained how to use Google’s Translate tool to translate websites and images with few clicks. Check my article “3 Ways to Use Google Translate in a Foreign Country”
Let’s get into more detail.
Best Online Supermarket and Grocery Shopping Websites in Turkey
1. Trendyol Supermarket
Trendyol is the most popular and reliable shopping website in Turkey. If you want to buy groceries and supermarket items and make your own food, I recommend Trendyol.
The biggest supermarket chains Migros and Happycenter are in Trendyol. Besides these two companies, many other producers also sell their products at Trendyol.
Trendyol has managed to transform itself into a marketplace. There is a price competition within the Trendyol website. For this reason, we can compare supermarket prices and buy from the cheapest sellers.
Trendyol also provides free shipping if you buy enough items.
Click go to Trendyol’s supermarket section.
Migros is one of Turkey’s largest supermarket chains, and its online shopping platform offers a broad range of products, from fresh groceries and pantry staples to household items and personal care products.
What sets Migros apart is its commitment to quality and customer convenience.
Their online platform offers delivery services that bring your shopping directly to your doorstep. It’s a great option for doing your grocery shopping from the comfort of your own home.
One more significant advantage of Migros is its broad network of stores across the country, making it possible to find virtually anything you need in terms of groceries and household items.

A101 is known for its cheap supermarket products. Providing a balance between lower quality yet, budget products.
In recent years, A101 took its simple grocery concept to the next level by opening an online store. As you know, we are always looking for the cheapest in these economic conditions.
A101’s online store has a wider selection of products than its regular stores. Besides supermarket products, A101’s internet store provides electronics, decoration items, and cosmetics products.
If you wish to go to A101’s online shop, click here.
Carrefour was one of the biggest supermarket chains in Turkey. Yet, recently Migros purchased all of Carrefour’s retail chain stores.
Most Carrefour stores are now converted to Migros stores. For now, Carrefour operates in limited cities.
If you want to go to Carrefour’s online store, click here.
5. Macro Center
Known for: High-quality supermarket
English Support: You should use google translate to operate this website.
One of my favorite stores is Macro Center. Although it is a bit expensive, I have always liked Macro Center.
Macro Center’s products are of high quality. Also, You can find imported luxury products that are not available in normal supermarkets, like sushi nori, pork products, organic Turkish figs, and apricots.
I also love their service quality and shop design. But, Macro Center does not have an extensive network of stores like other supermarket chains.
For my British readers, I can explain Macro Center very shortly. If Migros is UK’s Tesco, Macro Center is Mark and Spencer.
The retail store chain has approximately 280 stores in these provinces.
Macro Center has stores only in 15 provinces in Turkey. (Ankara, Izmir, Antalya, Bolu, Istanbul, Kayseri, Kırıkkale, Konya, Karaman, Malatya, Mersin, Samsun, Ordu, and Tekirdag).
If you live in an area where Macro Center serves, you can shop from the Macro Center by clicking here.

I was surprised when I found out that I could do my supermarket shopping from Çiçeksepeti.
Ciceksepeti, which is mostly known for its edible gifts and flower baskets, is a website that I have used for years to make my wife happy.
Ciceksepeti is growing in other areas like grocery shopping, and it is a reliable website you could use as an alternative.
Click to check Ciceksepeti’s homepage.
Yemekspeti supports the English language as a website. You will still need to use google translate because most of the restaurants’ menus are in Turkish.
Not a good variety of ready meals is available in Turkish supermarkets. If you wish to buy something cooked and ready to eat, I recommend Yemeksepeti.
Yemeksepeti provides fast food and basic grocery delivery service everywhere in Turkey.
I have used Yemeksepeti for more than 15 years now. Yemeksepeti is like Uber Eats. It lists all restaurants near you, and you can directly order your food from Yemeksepeti.
Yemeksepeti is free to use. Restaurants pay commissions to Yemeksepeti. Your order comes to your door free of charge. It will take around 30 minutes for your order to arrive.
Yemeksepeti also tracks the performance of the restaurants and displays it on their website.
For this reason, I always use Yemeksepeti and do not directly order from the restaurant. In my experience, restaurants provide better service when they deliver through Yemeksepeti.
I would strongly advise checking the restaurant’s rating before ordering your food. Yemeksepeti has the most restaurants listed and works in every province in Turkey.
You can make the payment via Yemeksepeti by credit card or at the door.
You can click here if you wish to go to Yemeksepeti’s homepage.
8. Banabi (by Yemeksepeti)
Banabi has very wide coverage in Turkey and delivers basic supermarket products and snacks in 15-30 minutes.
Banabi is a very fast grocery and supermarket delivery service. After your online order, a pink-dressed man will come to deliver in 15 minutes.
This month, it started to provide service in my hometown Manisa. I tested the service today. They brought 6 Kinder surprise eggs for my daughter Lidya in 15 minutes. They also give a 20 TL discount for my first order from their website.
They have a good variety of supermarket items, groceries, and snacks. Delivery men have very funny outfits.
(UPDATE: A year after I wrote this post, we continued to use Yemeksepeti’s Banabi, we are especially happy about their quick delivery at night time when all the shops are closed.)
If you wish to go to Banabi’s homepage, you can click here.
Last year, Getir started to provide services in Manisa, which is the city I live in.
Getir immediately became my mom’s favorite, she loves to order ice cream and various snacks at midnight. The delivery is very fast, and your purchases come within 30 minutes.
Getir is the newest and biggest competitor of Yemeksepeti. Yet, Getir became known as a reliable and reputable company.
In two years, Getir went viral and became an international company. Now they provide services in all major and minor cities in Turkey.
A Turkish company, Getir also started to provide services in London, Amsterdam, Berlin, Paris, Spanish and Italian cities.
They aim to meet their customer’s needs 24/7 like Yemeksepeti but Yemeksepeti still dominates the market.

10. Iste Gelsin
İstegelsin is another competitor of Yemeksepeti. İstegelsin provides delivery of supermarket products, snacks, and sweets.
You can order fresh fruits and vegetables, meat, fish, and many other groceries from Iste Gelsin.
There are also other sections, such as self-care products, books, and technological devices.
Iste Gelsin is one of the popular grocery delivery websites which I also use, and I am pleased with the products. I’ve never bought anything other than groceries, but I think it’s worth trying.
If you’d like to check out the website, you can click here.
11. Boyner Gourmet
Boyner Shopping site is well-known as an online clothes shopping website.
Yet, they also excel at Gourmet food. If you are looking for a food item that you cannot find in Turkey, you should definitely check out Boyner Gourmet.
For example, Boyner is probably the only online website in Turkey where you can find Black Truffle or Dried Shitake Mushroom.
To browse Boyner’s Gourmet section, you can click here.
Watsons is a supermarket chain without groceries. Watson is known for its comprehensive range of beauty and health products.
Watsons’ online platform provides a wide range of products from makeup, skincare, and hair care to health supplements and personal care items.
One of the strong points of Watsons is its commitment to offering a broad variety of brands, including international and local names, to cater to diverse customer needs and preferences. Whether you’re looking for high-end skincare products or affordable makeup brands, Watsons likely has you covered.
Click to check Watsons’ homepage.
Hepsiburada has been around for almost longer than most of the shopping sites on this list. Hepsiburada has been operating in this sector since 1998. This website contains more than 30 million products.
Products purchased in some regions are delivered within the day with its new services called Hepsiexpress.
Hepsiburada is the 2nd biggest online shopping website in Turkey, yet, in my personal opinion, they started to care less for their customers as they got bigger. For this reason, I am not using Hepsiburada anymore.

You should include Freshworld (https://www.freshworld.com.tr/) in your list of grocery stores. They have the best looking produce, deliver the next day, and offer pay at the door. I highly recommend them.
