Kas Cash Crop.

The name Kas is pronounced "cash", so this is a cash cash crop. But it is not hidden. The vendor has made a colourful display of local and imported produce.

Kas is located on the south coast of Turkey in Anatolia. According to Pliny, there was a Lycian town named Habesa or Habesos here. When the Greeks conquered the area, it became Antiphellos (opposite the rocks). Antiphellos was an important port in the Hellenistic period.

During time of the Roman Empire, the city state pledged allegiance to Rome and was a key trading port in the eastern Mediterranean.

Kas is now an important port for sailing boats that put in here to see the town and purchase supplies. This little shop will deliver directly to your boat free of charge, saving you having to carry it all the way back to the harbour which is really not very far.
