Central Market

Shop for traditional, local goods

Some call it Dimotiky, others Kentriki Agora but it is commonly known as the Central Market. It is the oldest market in Athens. Originally held in the streets around the Acropolis, in 1875 a building was constructed especially for the traders. Today, this neoclassical building is home to the Central Market and together they are not to be missed. The market welcomes hundreds of locals every day, attracted by the best local produce in Athens. In fact, many restaurants in the city buy their ingredients here. Don’t forget to visit the restaurant before you leave, which is found on the lower level of the building. Try some genuine Greek cuisine of unbeatable quality and at a very reasonable price. You'll love it!
