I get a kick out of those too squeamish to visit a real working market. This is surely one of those. Great to see people cutting meat, and people cueing up to purchase their products. Definitely worth the walk thru. Inside is the restaurant Esperos...More

A cool, if absolutely filthy (do not wear open-toed shoes here) stop where no doubt you will be outnumbered by locals. There are some good deals to be had on food and spices, and some even better food in nearby small restaurants. But the market...More

After having a poor lunch in one of the restaurants we decided to buy our own food and walked to the central market for that. Amazing fruit, produce, meat, fish, spices for very low prices. I wish my home town had anything even remotely comparable.

Omonia
Omonia Square is as plain in appearance as Syntagma is

frequented by immigrants and bargain shoppers. The
