AYDIN. It is snowing at the higher altitudes of Aydin, which benefits fig trees. The earthquake that shook the border region between Turkey and Syria on Monday morning caused limited market activity at the beginning of the week.

Catastrophe limits market activity

Snowfall and frost have arrived in the mountainous areas of Aydin where the fig trees are located. Temperatures approach freezing at night and it hardly gets warmer than 5-6°C during the day. Similar to Manisa, the province of Aydin is located in the very west of Turkey, which is why the earthquake in the Turkish-Syrian border area had no direct impact here. However, the market players' focus at the beginning of the week was set on the current situation and the market remained quiet.
