Varvakeios market (Athens central Market), Athinas street, Evripidou street and Sophocleous street with a thousand colours and aromas make up the centre of Athenian delicatessens, a throwback to another era.
The intense scents that spring from the stores at Evripidou street create an enchanting route from Klathmonos square to Koumoundourou street. Since 1886 the wider area specializes in food commerce, while Evripidou is the spices kingdom. The amazing variety astounds the passerby and the customers and you can find almost everything here.
The most fascinating and fragrant part of Evripidou Market extends between Athinas and Menandrou streets. Lilliputian shops selling spices, flower seeds and plants in small flower pots, ready to color your kitchen or your verandah, will definitely enchant you.
Although its name, from the goddess Athena, denotes wisdom rather than commerce, Athinas Street has always been a key commercial hub, linking Omonia Square to City Hall, the Plaka, the Roman and Athenian Agoras and Monastiraki. Athinas earned its nickname as the ‘Street of Miracles’ because it once formed a bridge between Athens gentrified, Western European quarters and its exotic, Oriental bazaars.
Piece by piece you’ll put together the colourful puzzle that is this neighbourhood. At the Pandrossou Street market, among the dozens of tourist shops, you’ll find some of the oldest jewellers in the Athens. Everyone stops for a souvlaki near the square.
