I love cooking, especially in Crete, where it wouldn’t be Wednesday without our weekly visit to market. To feed my love of cooking I follow a few blogs that feature Greek recipes, including the excellent, ‘Eat Yourself Greek‘ where I have enjoyed being a guest blogger today.
If you click on this beautiful bouquet of vegetables it will take you to Eat Yourself Greek to find out more about them.
Produce from Agios Nikolaos Wednesday market
The market in Agios Nikolaos is in the large car park near to the hospital and then runs down the street that emerges by the lake. Excellent quality fruit, vegetables, fresh fish, honey, herbs, wine, raki, and fresh flowers are in the top part of the market. Household good are in the centre as you start to walk downhill with shoes, clothing and miscellaneous ‘stuff’ lower down. The food end is certainly open from 8.00 whereas some of the non food items are not set out until later. Whether for serious shoping or a browse I can certainly recommend the market as one of the key attractions of the town. See you there!
