  • Lively atmosphere. See the traders in their natural habitat. Behold how they enjoy what they do. You can purchase food stuff unique to Athens and Greece and more from all over the world. And peaceful at night
  • Athens isn't only about antiquities and nightlife. It's also about getting the Greek flair in places like the central market. With a wide range of fish, meat, dairy products, herbs, spices and fresh produce from different parts of Greece, it's worth visiting it not only to buy some goodies for back home, but also as cultural point of interest.
  • Good place to see the real life and living standard of the people of Athens. Two parts - one for meat of all kinds including marine products but also all kinds of poultry and the other is for fruits, vegetables and daily grocery. Neat & spacious but of course some wet floor for the fish section. The coffee and eatery inside the Market and those around offer probably the cheapest offers in Athens.
  • A cool local fruit market, with fresh fruits, veg, nuts, olives, and more, and also featuring some niche stores with the most random items you could look through for ages, and the possibility of finding some valuable items if you know what you’re looking for. It does seem more aimed towards the locals however it is not far from the centre and its a great thing to be able to see local trades not aimed towards tourists.
  • The place is really unique. Recommended for walk or shopping. People are always smiling round there and you can find infrequent staff. Need to visit at least once in a life time.
