Traditional Market Tips (4)


Wherever I go, I like to visit markets. They usually are lively and colorful, and you can see the produces that local people consume, the prices, the way that merchants announce their goods and attract the attention of buyers…
Modiano and Kapani markets, both near Aristotelous square, are the oldest traditional markets in Thessaloniki. When we passed in the evening the stalls were closed, but we went again in the morning to watch the hustle and bustle of a work day.
We sadly saw many stalls closed in certain alleys, which makes more difficult for the ones that are open to have customers, but other alleys were quite busy.
In the market you may find whatever you need for your meals: meat, eggs, fish and seafood, coffee and tea, spices, olives, fruits and vegetables, etc. In the streets around the market there are also shoes and clothes shops.

Visit Modiano Market

Visit Modiano Market
Modiano is a large (almost) open market in the center of Thessaloniki. You can find nearly everything there. Food, clothes, souvenirs, small presents for your friends back home,... Just go into the small streets in the area, mix with the crowd and browse the shops.
You'll find out that the area is also very interesting for it's architecture. Some of the buildings are from the 1900's.
