My wife and myself are currently holidaying in Athens and when we asked where the best place to shop was the answer was Ermou Street. As it happens, we weren’t overly impressed with Ermou Street (like much of Athens today it is full of graffiti and many empty premises) and found the Flea Market (entrance is at Monastiraki Square) much more to a liking. As such - and be on your guard for potential pickpockets - this would be my recommended option for newcomers to Athens.

We stumbled upon this place when we went to the Acropolis Museum. Cute little stores and cafés. I highly recommend. As you walk by all the cafes the servers/host tend to be in your face as they want your to come into their place. But they are all harmless. Be careful of the smoke as everyone is able to smoke at out door cafes. This is what I hated and why I only gave 4 stars.

we came here early in the morning, almost 830am in the morning if im not mistaken. many shops are still not open yet. so we were walking for about 30 minutes only. we were looking at book stall but we didnt understands as the books is written in greek. so we didnt understand even a word and just pass by. we planned to buy crepe but the shop is not ready yet. so we just continue walking the market. btw for me its quite scary to be in this flea market . i dont know why but we were felt unsafe. is it because we were all females traveller and wearing hijab. but yes you need to be extra careful everywhere :)

Comparing this to the marche due puce in Paris or the flea market in Jaffa.Boutiques selling some of the latest styles in clothing,shoes and bags etc,sprinkled with the odd cafe.Certainly cheaper clothing on Achilleos street on the way to Omonia but overwise worth a stroll.Mainly catering to tourists with prices to match.

Went to Monastiraki on Sunday as most stores are closed in town. Didn’t go to the flea market part as I have enough of my own stuff I need to get rid of. As you are walking into the square.......take the alley/street on the left side between the 2 cafes which has shops lined along this street that cater to tourists. I bought a nice scarf for 5Eur.
