“Authentic (or as close to a tourist trap can be) Marketplace”
Review of Agora Marketplace

Agora Marketplace
Ranked #16 of 82 things to do in Chania Town
Attraction details
Reviewed 25 August 2013

Worth a quick stop a browse through the many stores in the marketplace. Many stores catering to tourists with olive oil, cheap jewelry, etc., but many stands with great pastries to enjoy that are very reasonably priced. Have the standard people/young children around asking for money, but they weren't overly agressive.

You need to visit the market while at Chania, not only to shop spices, oils, meat, cheese, bread, vegetable and souvenirs but to also admire the building!
I bought anthotiro (cretan white cheese) and it was the best white cheese I ever tasted.
There are also some tavernas in the agora and I am sorry I did not have time to eat there because the food smelled great.

Don't look in the goat head eyes but the fresh fish were unbelievable complete with the fisherman behind it. This is a must see and check out the authentic pastries.

I loved the Island of Crete!
It is quite big, with many attractions, and one of them is the Market of
Chania.
I was impressed by its cleaness, safety feelling.
I´ve felt at easy to stroll an buy goods as olive oil face creams, small souvenirs and snacks.
I strongly reccomend this tour.
