Loved the strolling amongst the various markets...and bargaining!! If you spend some time looking at the various retailers you can grab yourself some excellent bargains and great quality items as well!

We found the market by accident and strolled through. The large amount of meat hanging some with their heads on made it interesting to see. All types of found for sale. Good places to eat nearby that are cheaper to eat than along Plaka.

No visit to the center of Athens can be complete without a visit to the central market. Meat, fish, along with pets, vegetables, rice, spices and legumes sold in the adjoining buildings are all on display. There are also some dining options inside the main building serving food on a 24 hour basis. The overall feeling is kind of oriental.

Great market so long if you're not a veggie, the experience starts outside with all the little chicks on sale. Amazing meat displays , shame they still leave the heads on but fresher looking high quality fresh meat produce you won't find better. No wonder the meat tastes so good in athens with produce like this you can see why. Tesco finest , eat your heart out and I bet at a fraction of the cost back home. Very clean counters and an amazing spectacle close to all the other sites.

It is both charming and functional. The little restaurants that nestle themselves in there are a true find!! You can enjoy the pride the shopkeepers have of their goods and a brief compliment will likely get you a charming conversation with the shopkeeper. Its what Greece is in all its splendor, friendship and hospitality.
