When in Athens, a visit to the Central Market is indispensable. Its main entrance is situated on Athinás Street –one of the oldest streets of the city- while the market occupies a whole block. It opens early in the morning, weekdays and Saturdays, in order to cater restaurants and the Athenians with its fresh goodies. An outstanding variety of meat, fish, vegetables, fruits, dry fruits and nuts from every part of the country -and not only- is offered at the best prices you can get. It’s got a unique boisterous atmosphere and it can get really noisy when all the merchants start shouting in an attempt to draw the attention of potential buyers!
