  • My spouse is chef and we believed that there could be some interesting things to see and explain to our children. The truth is that site leaves much to be desired. If you have any special interest in go, do it early. There will be more products and the smell will better be strong! In the afternoon, it is difficult to endure the smell, especially in the area of the fish.

  • This is a proper market, wth plenty of meat and fish suppliers. For those in Athens staying in an apartment I would suggest coming here to get your food (i suspect its very well priced). There are als...  more »
  • When visiting a new place, I always visit the wet market. Visiting markets makes you feel the people, what they eat, and how they interact. This is a seafood and meat market with a few restaurants. Ma...  more »

  • Definitely a cool spot to check out. Make sure you wear closed toe shoes at the fish market has fish water everywhere. Your feet will get wet and nasty. Otherwise you have a great selection of fresh everything. It's pretty crowded and this is not for the faint of heart. You will see things you might not be used to, but most restaurants I the area source meat from here.
  • First off, I will admit that I'm not from Athens, and I did not shop here to find food for cooking, so take my review with a grain of salt. We visited the market and walked through it a few separate times. It was open even through late Saturday afternoon. It's always great seeing what's​ available at markets. There were mostly fish and meat stands, but you can easily find the vegetable, herbs, nuts, and snacks stands. Those are the ones we loved the most because they obviously had better smells. This market, even if you're not intending to buy anything because you're visiting, is worth at least a half hour walk around in order to see all that it offers.
  • I love visiting markets when I travel, as each are by different. I like seeing where the food comes from. I received many love and marriage proposals during my walk through. I'm wondering if this is standard procedure?
  • Well worth a look around. Not like the Spanish markets, as it is mostly fish and meat on sale. The fruit and veg can be found a little further from the butchers and isn't as big, more like a regular market. Huge selection of fish and seafood. Surrounding area has a lot of interesting shops selling all sorts of food from herbs to cheese to beans.
  • Its a huge place to buy meat. You are going to see a lot of it. Its graphic.
