self catering

We're going to Skiathos 1st May and will be mainly self catering. I just wondered if there are any markets to buy local produce especially fish.

There is the fish market in town, which is on the old harbour. Its a collection of small stalls selling in the morning as the local boats come in.

There also is a small shop on a side street, near acropolis, which is well stocked but somewhat difficult to explain how to get to - unless you are a returning visitor.

Hi Harriet,

If you want fruit and veg there are a few supermarkets on Papadiantis street that sell a varied selection.

Every thing you will need for a Greek salad (YUM).

You don't say where you are staying as the supermarkets in the villages/resorts have a small amount of fresh produce but some times it looks past its best .it all depends when the new stock comes in and how often they replenish .

There are 3 or 4 large super markets on the ring road around town that are a bit cheaper than the smaller ones in town .

As Skiathoslover says the fresh fish is sold at the fish market on the old harbour. I couldn't tell you either as to where the fish shop is although i have passed it.

Just noticed you are going 1st May so all the produce should be fresh as you will be on one of the 1st flights in.
