Supermarket

I know there is a Lidl supermarket just outside Maleme but wondered if there are any similar or bigger shopping areas between Plantanias and Chania. I'm not expecting anything like we have at home but sometimes the Lidl was a bit limited as far as fruit and veg goes and we'd like to find somewhere with a bit more choice.

There is plenty of choice, both in supermarkets and small grocery stores. Grocery stores are sometimes cheaper (fresh fruit and vegetables) than supermarkets. There is also a street market in Chania every 2 days, in different locations. The closer you are in Chania, the more supermarket choice you have.

Go into Chania, as Niriis suggests, to the outdoor markets. The covered market, open daily, always has a wide choice of fruits and vegetables.

There is a big supermarket right in the middle of Maleme. I seem to recall it's a co-op.

Many thanks for all your replies, unfortunately we had already left for Maleme when these were posted, however we found the Co-op which was much better than Lidl as far as choice was concerned and thanks for the advice re market shopping in Chania. We're already planning next years holiday as we had such a great time!
