Incredible seafood at incredible prices...so fresh, what a difference with a Mediterranean town market. In addition, you can taste lots of tapas and specialties right there around the market. If you want, you buy seafood at the market, bring it up and they will prepare...More

The Central market has loads of fresh seafood; many different types of fish and shellfish. A few stalls offer vegetables and fruit. Also there is a row of stalls offering fresh and preserved meats.

Nice market, mainly seafood some fruits and vegetables. The main bustle is early with locals buying fresh fish. There are also plenty of cafés/ tavernas around for lunch. Nice to wander and soak up daily life.

The fish on display were really interesting, some of them were enormous. Didn’t get the feeling that we were in the way at all. I was surprised that there was so much going on, very clean too. Next door is the flower market which was...More

We did not notice any when we visited there. However, it is an open air market and there are so many places selling food for people to eat at the tables around the court and there are many that do. So it might make it... More
