    Vin Santo Wine: Fantastic view as you park your vehicle

    by mapakettle Written Jan 19, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is the only picture of our driver I can find, plus Ma Kettle of course.

    Well worth a visit, as you can sample the wine before buying, and you can spend hours looking at the view.

    Highly recommend you do this.

    ANY MINIMARKET: A THINGS I THOUGHT ABOUT AFTER A NIGHT OUT

    by DAO Written Jun 6, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    What to buy:
    I do not remember taking this picture, but it was obviously at the end of a late night drinking session. After I studied it I realised there are some good shopping tips here! What’s in the picture?

    • Beer – cheap in the minimarkets here and great if you have a fridge in your room
    • Moisturizer! Want to keep that tan? Moisturize daily
    • Ouzo!! Available in great bottle shapes for gifts. Tastes horrible, looks good.
    • Cigarettes – cheaper here than in most of Europe. Compare prices in the shop vs. Duty Free. Duty Free is not always cheaper!
    • Diet coke – not all countries have it! Available easily here

    Champion-Marinopoulos Supermarket: Shop where Greeks shop

    by om_212 Updated Oct 4, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Santorini's shops are notorious for being tourist-oriented, thus extremely overpriced. whether you are on budget, or just would like to get some basic things like water, olives, cheese, vine, etc., for the affordable price, go to a Champion-Marinopoulos supermarket. it's a modern supermarket (French chain) with great variety of fruits, vegetables, Greek-made and international products.

    I've seen two of them in Santorini: one in Emporio (near Perissa Beach) and one in Thira (a bit lower than the bus station).

    one in Emporio village is 5 min by bus, or 20 min of leisure walk from Drossos Hotel. Don't confuse with the Big Discount Supermarket located a half way. the latter, though positioned as a discount is still more expensive than the former.

    What to buy: local wine: Assyrtiko, Nykteri, Vinsanto (produced by Boutari or Santo Wines) - from 5 euro and up

    local brandy: Metaxa - from 17 euro for 7-star to 22 euro for 12-star (Olympian Reserve)

    olives: Kalama (5 euro per kilo), capers, feta cheese, etc.

    Kommothpio: Santorini Haircut

    by Jmill42 Written Mar 18, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    My first European haircut, I had here. I have to say that it was an excellent job. In addition to that, the haircutter spoke very good English (probably why the haircut went well), and was able to chat it up with me. The have the usual haircare products, Paul Mitchell if I remember correctly, and do mens and womens hair.

    If you're in need, this is a good place for a trim.

    What to pay: 12 Euro

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    On the main lower road out of Fira toward the airport, but withiin easy walking distance from the bus terminal, is a small ironmonger store and they carry lots of fishing and sports & beach gear, too.
    Aimed at a local market, there is no kitch here.

    What to buy: Some interesting local fishing eqipment and diving gear.

    What to pay: Regular, local price, not a tourit hike-up

    Big Discount Supermarket: Food, newspapers and souvenirs

    by om_212 Written Oct 4, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    the Big Discount Supermarket sells international products, but also has some variety of fruits and vegetables as well as Greek-made products, eg spices, canned olives, etc.

    it also has a good news stand of international newspapers and magazines, as well as basic souvenir selection - calendars, magnets, boxes, etc.

    What to buy: local wine: Assyrtiko, Nykteri, Vinsanto (produced by Boutari or Santo Wines)

    local brandy: Metaxa 7-star or 12-star (Olympian Reserve)

    spices, tea, olives

    What to pay: though the store positions itself as a discount supermarket, the prices are slightly higher than in the Champion-Marinopoulos supermarket located down the road (10-15 min walk). so expect to pay around 20% more than in the regular supermarket. it's convenient if you are staying in the center of Perissa and don't want to walk when it's hot.

    Florita's Fine Leather: Handbags

    by margaretvn Written Dec 2, 2007

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This little shop has a lovely collection of leather handbags plus leather coats. The owner is very friendly and helpful and will take the time to show you goods without pushing you into buying. I went back three times to look at a bag before I bought one and each time he was friendly. In a lot of shops on the island you can buy fade topmarks Prada and Burberry seem very popular. This shop though has good quality bags.

    What to buy: I finally bought a lovely handbag made of patchwork leather with red as the main colour. The leather is made and treated in Tuscany but the bag is made in Greece.
    Do remember though that he will give you a discount for cash and you can talk him into a little more discount as well.

    What to pay: the shop has a wide range of prices

    Mati Art Gallery: And Now For Something Completely Different

    by johngayton Written Dec 20, 2009

    The Mati Art Gallery qualifies as much as a "Thing to Do" as it does a "Shopping" tip. This is a private gallery dedicated to showcasing (and selling) exclusively the work of the Athens-based sculptor Yorgos Kypris.

    Yorgos's pieces range from ornately-crafted jewelery to major installations. As a shop Mati aims to provide unique souvenirs for the discerning visitor, as opposed to the kitschy stuff to be found elsewhere on the Island. As to be expected from its location there is a distinct emphasis on the sea, and nature in general, to the artworks and you'll find some interesting examples on the website.

    The gallery is much more than just a tourist shop though. You are more than welcome to visit as you would a non-commercial gallery and to share the artist's world-view.

    Fira Fish Market: Self-catering Tip #1

    by johngayton Written Dec 20, 2009

    If you are staying in one of the town's many self-catering apartments this is the place to search out for your fresh fish, pretty much straight off the boats.

    This is on the main road going up the hill towards Firostefani.

    What to pay: Prices obviously vary depending on the catch but are usually hand-written as Euros per Kilo and you pay according to the weight.

    Fruit and Veg Market: Self-catering Tip #2

    by johngayton Updated Dec 20, 2009

    There's several little supermarkets around the town where you can get fresh fruit and veg. This one looked the best to me. Everything nice and fresh, well-displayed and I reckon mostly locally-grown.

    This is located on a corner off one of the main streets that bisects the town centre from North to South.

    What to pay: Prices vary according to availability and are hand marked. As with the fish market you pay by weight.

    Santorini shops: Shoppoing For Souvenirs

    by AusPinay Written May 20, 2010

    I guarantee you will have loads of enjoyment shopping atop Santorini's many wonderful shops- the Greeks here are very friendly, not just the shop keepers mind you!

    You can buy all sorts of souvenirs showcasing local artistic crafts and the prices are so reasonable too! The magnets for instance are just one Euro each, compared to those in Milan, Venice or even at the local shops in Mestre! I had much fun shopping and viewing the whitewashed buildings housing the wonderful array of Greek products- clothes, jewelries, all sorts of souvenir items of reasonable prices! They will even give yo ua discount even if you don't ask, now, that's something!

    What to buy: As I said, souvenirs like fridge magnets - colourful and cheap as chips...plus the caps (also one Euro each at the foot of the mountains ( a bit dear on the top, which was surprising!), bags, tops showing Greek style of weaving/laces, etc..

    What to pay: Expect one Euro for each magnet, whatever design, trust me! Also one Euro for a souvenir cap that says Santorini, Greece.

    Loizos: Best Prices

    by 88Starflite Written Jun 5, 2010

    Much larger then it looks, has lots of everything.

    What to buy: Well the chilled wine barrel of course. Red runs 2.7 euros for one liter and about 5.2 for two liters. The white wine costs even less. Self sealing plastic bottles are their and all you do is fill them. I got one liter of red and it was very good, note, it seemed to have a hi alc. content, more then the norm. Oh, I also got some energy drinks, they were 1.4 euros, the lowest I paid elsewhere was 1.9 euros each.

    What to pay: I would say this place was a good 25% lower with there prices compared to other shops.

    "Local open markets and green groceries": "White aubergines"

    by INSULARIUS Written Jun 19, 2010

    In Santorini, due to its volcanic soil,you can find a lot of "green products" that you can not find in any other islands or in other countries of the world!

    A typical local product is: the white aubergines.Normally,we think that aubergines are only mauve, but in Santorini come even in white colour and are simply delicious!

    What to buy: White aubergines (eggplants)-Lefkes melintzanes (in Greek)

    What to pay: Starting from 5 euros

  • Santorini eShop: Shopping in Santorini

    by MDimopoulos Written Mar 20, 2012

    I am from Greece originally, but grew up in Spain. Last summer I went for vacation to the island of Santorini and found it magnificent. The reason I am posting this is I would very much like to know this earlier too! Shopping in Santorini was great, I only had a problem with fitting things I wanted to buy in my luggage and as a result I only bought presents for family and friends but couldnt buy things I wanted for myself. I resently discovered a Santorini eShop, I guess the only one excisting (at least I haven't found anything else) where you can find anything!! Plus, I emailed them to ask for a spesific product (a Vinsanto) I couldnt find and they put it up within a week!

    What to buy: You will find there anything except from jewellery.. Traditional food, wines, postcards, magnets, guides, even books and artwork..

    What to pay: You may spend as little as 8 euros (the shipping expenses to Spain are around 4 euros for something small) and of course depends on the amount of stuff you want to buy.. If you buy like 6 bottles of wine you will definitelly pay more, the prices though as far as I remember are the same as when on the island
