    A cocoon design
    1 more image

    Very near the port of Kymi there is a round kiosk where Local products are sold.
    It is usually open in the evenings and also when a ship is in the port.

    I went there and got both a video of this artistic work and the designs the women in Kymi create which are very popular in traditional houses. They put the designs in frames and hang them on the walls in their houses.
    They are beautiful designs, suitable for a traditional house.

    What to buy: Besides the cocoon designs there are all kinds of other local products similar to those of the other co op the women make at Chania Avlonariou.

    You can buy one or two souvenirs from these ladies here in Kymi.

    (See the small video I have taken)

    A variety of marmelades and home-made desserts, sweets made from grape juice called
    (mustalevria) and mustokouloura, frumenty, pasta, baklavas, home made sweet liqueur from different fruit, cheese pies, spinach pies, herbs, and different kind of bisquits.

    Also the women bake bread.

    I found a local brand of beer sold here, and I am soon going to visit the company and try it myself.
    I have heard it is of excellent quality, but I will add to this when I go there very soon!

    Dried figs

    Figs are quite famous in the round area of Kimi. You can easily find them wrapped in packages or sold loosely.

    It is believed that the figs from this area are the most famous in the whole of Greece.

    What to buy: You can either buy them fresh during August, or buy them dry in packets but also loose.
    You will see locals selling them in local open fruit markets.
