the farmers’ market: food

We tried this local honey and were instantly converted!

Fresh fish of every variety!

The roving spice peddler!

Many vendors label (and speak) in both Greek and Turkish.  We live in the only city in Greece with a 50/50 Greek/Turkish population.

Almonds, walnuts, oregano, and eggs.

All kinds of local herbal teas.

You can find pretty much everything at the farmers’ market!

See the selection of olives here and produce here.

  1. Beautiful photos Heidi! I love Farmers Markets. These products remind of Bosnia (except fresh fish) and the teas remind me of my grandma who always collected herbs for homemade teas and taught me which tea helps with which ailment.
    Have a great weekend!

    • Sibella, that’s wonderful that your grandma taught you that! I don’t know what they’re all for, although the herb sellers are very helpful in educating their customers. This town has at least 5 or 6 herbal tea stores and they will ‘diagnose’ problems and ‘prescribe’ teas. I love it!

  2. Lat year we went to the Varvakios Agora in Athens and enjoyed looking around all the stalls but we like these little street markets just as much. In Symi an old lady persuaded me to buy some bay leaves – 3 bags for 5 euro, I took only 1 because I couldn’t carry 3 home in my luggage but couldn’t adequately explain why and she seemed perplexed by that!
