Nice fresh meet and fish market in the center of the city. Bought some spices and olive oil soap for gifts. No bad smell, like other fresh meat markets. Quite loud place as everyone is trying to sell his/her product.

Busy market, mostly selling fish, meat, fruit and veg. Very noisy, lots of shouting going on all the time, gives it atmosphere, wasn't to impressed, didn't buy anything.

This old market is popular with both locals and tourists. Do not expect much bargaining but you may find something beautiful between the usual junk.

Easy to find, terrific ambience. Great to find a cafe and just watch the passing parade, the characters and sip a good coffee!

This market is located downtown, easy to find and with some very good tavernas around.. The best is probably the Ouzery O loutros.

Another market or shouk. As usual a colorful place to stroll through and the prices are a bit better than you will find in shops. We really enjoyed the fish stalls with the wide variety of wares we do not see at home.
