Every Saturday this street is converted into a wondrous array of genuine local produce. Very good honey from Anopolis: 10 kilos of the sweetest tastiest oranges ever grown for 2 euros....and whole wealth of other things.

The Saturday farmers market in Chania extends for several blocks and offers visitors a wide variety of locally produced fruits and vegetables. The quality is high and it's amazing how many different items are produced on Crete. It's fun to browse and to buy.

There are several local markets on different days in different locations in Chania, but the one to find is the Saturday market at the end of the inner harbour, running the length of Minoos Street. It's a key weekly social event for the town and...More
