O.k. this market place isn't La Boqueria (Barcelona) or Mercado de San Miguel (Madrid) but it worths a visit.It is an interesting old construction located in the city center but most of the shops are touristic and a few of them are really food oriented.But the cheese marketplaces are divine! Do not leave without tasting cretan graviera!

A tourist trap with not too much out of the ordinary, great selection of cheeses on the positive part. Hard to find a parking space,

The Central Market is a comfortable place to shop for whatever you need. There are shops everywhere in Chania but the market has it all in one place. I liked the photo display in the center of the market showing the evolution of the construction and every-day life at the market.

The Market is very wide, clean and relaxing, perfectly organized and the products are very nicely presented. Locals can find all what they need for their... More

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 )
