Varvakios Agora – Food Market in Athens

food market

The streets around the colourful and bustling Varvakios Agora are a sensory delight.

The meat and fish market fills the historic building on the eastern side, and the fruit and vegetable market is across the road.

The meat market might sound like a strange place to go for a meal, but its tavernas are an Athenian institution.

Clients range from hungry market workers to elegant couples emerging from nightclubs in search of a bowl of hangover-busting patsas (tripe soup).
