Kapani market is located near Aristotle Square, only a few blocks from the waterfront and about 20 minutes walk from where we were staying. It is one of the oldest markets in Thessaloniki with vendors crammed into a small maze of narrow streets. Besides shoes and clothing, religious paraphernalia and souvenirs, there are some excellent food stalls selling fresh fish, hand-made sausages, top quality fruit and vegetables, cheese, olives, sweets and nuts.

Wanting to buy supplies we could use to make our lunch, we ended up with some big juicy olives, a generous block of feta, some peaches and a variety of vegetables, all at very reasonable prices compared to what we are used to in London. In total we paid €7.30 which equated on the day to £6.40. We thought it was a bargain. Here’s what we got:

  • Bunch of lettuce
  • Bunch of fresh parsley
  • 4 tomatoes
  • 2 lemons
  • 1 cucumber
  • 6 large juicy peaches
  • 300 g block of feta
  • 500 g of large juicy olives
