Various: Where To Get Your Touristy Bits!
The main pedestrianised street leading off the main square (down by the harbour) has all the basic shops you could require for souvenirs, batteries, photo printing and etc. There's also a couple of ATM's, fast food places and clothes shops.
Keep going up that street though and you get to the shops where the locals do their shopping - it's not that much further and prices drop drastically.Related to:

SOUVENIR SHOPS: VARIOUS SHOPS
Ohrid has many shops to choose from. There are all kinds of clothing and shoe shops as well as jewellery shops. There is one souvenir shop on the main street that I thought was really attractive and colorful. Early one morning I watched as she got her store's display ready. Out came the male mannequin, decked out in colorful costume, then came some wonderful Macedonian crafts such as pottery, hand-made leather shoes in the traditional Macedonian style. I just loved this shop and had fun browsing through the many things she had to sell. There even was canned and jars of typical Macedonian preserves.
Other favourite things to buy are traditional Macedonian musical instruments, woodcarvings, items made from copper and CD's with authentic and traditional Macedonian music. Actually we bought 2 CD's to use as background music for Hans' videos.
One old shop I thought was quite interesting was the old Leather and Shoe Repair Shop (pics # 4 & 5). I never saw the shop open, but just peering through the shop window was like looking back in time. You could see strips and bits of leather, shoes made in the traditional Macedonian style - little souvenir ones and big adult size ones. There were leather belts and leather dog leashes too.
OHRID MARKET: FRESH FRUIT & VEGETABLES
Very near the fountain and the old plane tree, you can find the OHRID MARKET. The day I was there, I bought some bananas. Everything was so fresh and displayed very well.
You can also find other fruits such as apples, oranges, grapefruit.
Vegetables include potatoes, carrots, onions, cabbage, tomatoes, cucumbers, all sorts of peppers and a variety of fresh herbs.
Minas: Here you find the best of all coffee types!
A nice to see big M!
A small shop in the center of old Ohrid where you can get expresso, neskafe, but also the most traditional coffee types (tursko) in Macedonia. If you can't drink coffee, there are alternatives of roasted grains:

Naut (prepared as a Turkish coffee) has a gentle taste, more even whith some cinnamon powder.

Close to the centre of Ohrid and the Krusevska Republika Square (with a fountain and the 900-year old plane tree known as Cinar) there is a food market. Good to know for those of you who want to cook their own food, since in the supermarkets vegetables are hard to find!Related to:
