Piraeus Flea Market

Keep on haggling!

This market might not appear in other guides to the city and it might not be one of the most popular, but it is well worth a visit. It is known as Piraeus Market. To get there, take the metro to the last stop on line 1. The streets in this area are full of stalls and street vendors working 7 days a week. This is the largest market of imitation products in Athens, selling everything you could ever want, from sunglasses to fake antiques and relics at bargain prices. As you move through the stands, you'll see goods also displayed on the floor and the whole street may seem like one big market stall. It is important to remember that, just as in other markets in the city, haggling is all part of the fun.
