Prinos Market on Mondays

We are arriving in Thassos on Sunday (22/6/14) and staying in Thassos Town and are new to the island but have been many time to Greece.

We have been reading up a bit on the Go-Thassos website about the various villages on the island and noticed that on the Prinos info it mentioned a Market/Bazaar on Monday mornings.

Does anyone know if this market is worth a visit and what time it starts and finishes

Several years since I was on Thasos, but do recall the market as we were actually staying in Prinos & were warned by our hosts that if we wanted to use our car on Monday we'd need to take it & park it beyond the market area & surrounding streets the night before. He was not wrong! From dawn light there was a real buzz passing below our room & the streets were packed with unloading cars & people.

The market was great - very colourful & noisy & with all sorts of stuff including loads of beautiful fresh fruit & veggies & flowers. A great opportunity if you are a keen photographer! After browsing we went off walking for the day, so not sure what time it finished - probably early afternoon.
