If the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, then you will definitely love the Greek capital after a visit to the Central Market of Athens.
It is literally the Grand Central Station of food, where people from all walks of life converge to discover the freshest and tastiest ways to satiate their hunger. Make no mistake, everyone shops here, from celebrity chefs to neighborhood grocery store owners.
Named after one of Greece’s national heroes, the gentleman pirate Ioannis Varvakis (1794-1825), it’s a tribute to people everywhere, as Athens’ Central Market, also known as Varvakeios, knows no class divisions.
Replacing an earlier, much more anarchic structure that eventually collapsed in 1884, it is a monument to Greek production, where every edible food source under the sun is bought and sold before your eyes.
