Go north for the most Malls and south for...

    For the best place to buy local products on the island is got to be the small shop in Chora called “The road to the taste”. Most of the products like jams, pickles and honey are all made on the island by locals. Also the locals do hand pick herbal tea or oregano and thyme from the mountains which is also on sale in the shop and that is where I...

    Crete Island Shopping

    Any shop sells olive oil over there but it has nothing to do with a reality. You may find the real one at any restaurant in the village as the owner might probably have the olive business as well. It's very cheap. Besides you may buy a nice souvenir bottle and it will go together well as a typical greek gift. Just a tip.
