    Local Super Market: Souvenir Time

    by painterdave Written Sep 7, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Check out time

    What does it mean when you drive your car onto a ferry? It means you can bring more and bigger things home, that you cannot bring on a plane anymore.
    Our list included the brands of Greek beer that we cannot get in Italy, different brands of olive oil, strings of garlic and purple onions and other food stuffs.
    Why not bring Greece home to your kitchen? Now when we eat Greek food, it is more like being there.

    What to pay: Cheaper in a market, so plan ahead.

    music: vinyls and cd

    by mindcrime Updated Feb 6, 2011
    UPSTAIRS record store

    If you want to buy some music there are some record stores in Patras. They are local small stores of course that try to survive from the internet :)

    I’m more into vinyl records so my favorite one is UPSTAIRS (Gerokostopoulou, tel:2610222354) that has a nice collection of old folk, jazz and prog rock albums (you can also find some cds upstairs).

    Some other stores are(they will also give you information about concerts etc):
    STICKY FINGERS (Kanakari 66, between Kolokotroni & Zaimi, tel:2610275463) cds at groundfloor and vinyls downstairs. Mostly pop, rock and some old greek albums
    MUSICAL (Ermou 46 & Maizonos, tel:2610620222) mostly new albums, reissues, not many vinyls, some metal too

    At Karaiskaki, near Gounari) there’s another one focusing more on hard rock/metal but I cant recall the name

    Finally some address of record stores I didn’t have time to check:
    DIHXO (25th Martiou 50-52 & Ermou, tel:2610273970)
    MUSIC STATION (Riga Feraiou 34, tel:2610222411)
    ORPHEYS (Zaimi 22-24, tel:2610220413)

    farmers’ market: farmers’ market

    farmers��� market

    Every greek city has several different farmers’ market. There’s no difference with Patras, there is at least one every day (on different streets of course so to cover different areas of the city).
    The one we visited takes place every Saturday at Kolokotroni street (although it spreads along the side streets too). It’s a colorful local market with many fresh products from the general area, we loved the honey, the fresh fishes, some great tea and some eggs :)

    Of course you can just go there and buy some fresh seasoned fruits. There is also a small part with flowers and another part with cheap clothes

    Other markets:
    On Mondays at Londou or Panahaikou (changes every 4 months)
    On Tuesdays at Agia Paraskevi (end of Germanou street) and at Deksameni (behind the old hospital)
    On Wednesdays at Agias Triadas & Skagiopouleiou
    On Thursdays at Agias Sofias or Ellinos Stratiotou (changes every 4 months)
    On Fridays at Prosfigika
