If you are used to doing your shopping for food in super markets, you might want to change your habits. Due to the fine weather of Greece, there are open-air fruit and veg markets in every neighbourhood on specific days of the week. They are called “laiki agora” and it is not just the fact that you buy things, it is the fun you have talking to the sellers, choosing your own fruit and vegs, meeting people and, last but not least, practising your Greek. The vendors are mainly producers who bring their fresh goodies from their farms to the city. Prices start a little high in the morning but get really low towards midday.
As you may know, we often organize outings at the “Laiki” in groups and we can reassure you that we all find it very entertaining and helpful for ex-pats living in Greece.
