Today I went to the market, in Thessaloniki. If you really want to get a feel for the culture you have to check out the markets. You can get everything from fresh fruits and vegetables, to fresh fish and meat, to clothing, shoes, and accessories, even things for the home, table linens and curtains. Everything is cheaper at the markets and it's always bussling with people. The stand vendors are always yelling something out to get your attention and the atmosphere is really lively. I took this picture of the olives because I don't think I've ever seen so many olives and different types before. Sometimes they'll even let you have a sample so that you can see which ones you would rather buy.
Every town in Greece has their own market on a different day. wherever you visit ask to find out when the "Laiki" will be taking place...it's definitely worth a visit.
