Very interesting post Baris.
Here in Spain there are also a lot of this stands in vacation resorts.
I always thought about their numbers, as of the ones of the restaurants and cafeterias.
Anyway, in Spain taxes and municipality costs are much higher than in Turkey, but also prices.
You can expect to pay 2.5 - 3 euro for a corn here.No price difference between locals and tourist.


Juan Luis,
At 3 euros per ear of corn, you definitely don't need to differentiate between locals and tourists :-)

I didn't get to it but they sell corn in downtown Istanbul at 1YTL...shows you how little margins they have in big cities vs. tourist spots.

Thanks for bringing back so many fond memories of my time in Alacati and also for your lesson that "less is more" when it comes to saving and consuming. I especially like the part about the two-tier pricing system, that I frequently encountered at museums, stores, and corn stands, but was able to bypass on occasion with the information that I lived and worked in Turkey and wasn't "yabanci." I cross-posted on your piece to The Innovators Network is a non-profit dedicated to bringing technology to startups, small businesses, non-profits, venture capitalists and intellectual property experts.

Hi Baris,

The corn looks so yummy...I went to Germany a few years back and fell in love with the donner kabobs...a couple of our friends just came back from Turkey and talked the great food, people and beaches...can't wait to go visit...

BTW, thanks for your feedback at Orrick yesterday. I really enjoyed your input and lively personality:-)


The pleasure was mine. Hope you found the event useful.
