Food shopping

Well...2 weeks until we will be in beautiful Crete. We are self catering, and while we will eat out sometimes, we also like to eat back at our apartments a couple of times. Where would the best place to shop for meat and veg be? Not wanting English produce as we prefer to eat as the locals do. I know there is the market for fruit and veg, does anybody know if meat, cheeses etc can be bought there too? We re staying at the Golden Apartments. Many thanks in advance!

Hi there

As you are staying in the Golden Apartments which is up by the hospital, there are couple of larger local supermarkets that we always use, one is the Spar walking distance from your hotel, so with the hospital behind you turn left and walk down that road the Spar is on your left hand side, or alternatively if you have a car I would shop at the Lidl where the majority of the locals tend to shop as its cheap :-) it is signed posted off the national road, (if you want more specific direction then just ask)

There is also a local market on a Wednesday morning in Agios,this is mainly a fruit and veg market, so with the lake and the sea behind you walk up the hill towards the archeological museum on your right, (there is also another spar supermarket on your left here too), the market is then on your left hand side you cant miss it.

Have a great holiday, we are back in Agios on the 7th July too :-)
