On the plus side the people are friendly, there are some nice things and especially the café food looked good. However, prices tend to be higher than elsewhere (even in Chania) so I was disappointed, for instance at the knock-off back pack splitting its stitches on the first go since it wasn't cheap, and the (sealed) bag of honeyed nuts...

Really liked the local market since it has many local products. Very vibrant and alive place and you should go just to get a scent of the local vibe.

Park in Carrefour cellar for free and walk 5 minutes to the market. You will get a free parking when you shop in Carrefour after visiting the market ( 2 hour limit for free )

The "excellent" rating is for one little restaurant in the market. If you enter from the East side of the market it is the second (?) restaurant on the right - the smallest in the market. Not much to look at but mother, of the mother and son team, cooks the best food I have eaten in Chania. Counter in... More

The Agora in ancient Greece is a place where people met and mingled and the most famous ones are the ones that served as market. The Market agora in Chania is the perfect example of this cohesion, you can find all kind of local souvenirs and the meet, fish and cheese market. Very nice and welcoming the people working there...

We ate here on several occasions and had some good quick food. A good way to try some new food - not too expensive although it could be if you aren't careful as prices not always displayed

Nice and friendly people, competent professionals, shops and small restaurants offering authentic Cretan cuisine. Visitors may find real stuff from Crete. Just avoid the plastic souvenirs... A must-do experience
