    There are many gift shops with the usual crap, magnets and other souvenirs but you can skip them and buy a painting that shows a corner of the island but that will be more expensive. In some monasteries you can find handcrafts made my the nuns.

    Of course you can even spend more if you decide to buy something from the jewelry stores, the stores are popular for those who like gold jewelry and precious stones.

    We didn’t really buy anything in Hydra except fresh fruits(pic 2) and bread from the local market :) The island doesn’t produce something so they have to import almost everything from mainland. Don’t miss the local sweets which are traditional almond desserts.

    Super Market (that's the name!): Try the retsina.

    Supermarket, Hydra, greece.

    there are several small supermarkets in the town, but we found this one to be particularly good. As you can see, the selection of fruit and veg was excellent, and inside was jsut about any foodstuffs you would need.

    Also, they have a concession for a very good retsina which is ridiculously cheap at less than 3 euros for a large bottle.

    What to buy: Fruit, veg and, of course, the retsina.

    What to pay: Island prices are higher than the mainland, but this place is no more expensive than anywhere else on the island.
