After taking you on a journey to the parliament building in my See You in Greece post, feels appropriate to show you around the oldest market in Athens and significant socioeconomic indicator.
The word "Agora" is Greek for market, it has been the most vibrant / colourful commercial point in Athens for more than a hundred years.
Every where you look around Varvakio, you see meat, fish and vegetable vendors. Athens Municipality began its construction in 1878, it is considered a traditional economic indicator.
Apart from people trying to sell and buy their foods, you will also notice plenty of camera crews and journalist from various European channels like BBC, DW, CNN and so on.
We also did a photo walk to give you a proper tour of the historic centre of Athens and some local shops that have stood and pass the test of time.
Like Psirri, Athina street and some stores that brought the eastern Constantipole Greek foods and rare ingredients for some deliciously hot cuisine.
If you have watch the movie "A touch of spice" you will never want to leave Miran, and the small tavern inside the market.
It felt like been in a time machine that took us back to that era, back in Smyrna and Constantipole.
This look just feels perfect for what we have in mind and of course show you every bit of creative Greece.
