This is a shoppers delight. Small boutiques, souvenir shops and cafes line the narrow, pedestrian only streets of the old town of Chania. You can spend an entire afternoon browsing or if you are like me, following your spouse into almost every shop in town....More

There were some shops selling food products but the majority were selling souvenirs and nick knacks. There were also a few unappetizing looking restaurants. As much as I like markets, I did not find this one very appealing.

The main market in Khania may see many tourists, but still local people go there for their daily shopping. Absolutely worth a visit, consider buying eadible souvenirs like savoury goat cheese or salted olives and have a tasty meal at one of The genuine tavernas.

This is a massive cross shaped building with historical importance for the whole city. It used to be and still is a meeting point for groceries and locals.

Beware that disabled parking is very limited. Fascinating market and old town full of alleys and shops selling Cretan products.

A place no one should miss when visiting Chania. It has everything, regarding food. Cretan products like cheese of all kinds from fresh to mature cheese, olives, olive oil, wine, raki, herbs, and quite a few little taverns with excellent food, favorite being Agapinis Tavern....More

We really enjoyed wondering through the markets shops in Chania old town. Sellers are mostly not pushy but friendly. There's great leather stores, crockery and kitchenware, olive oil products, jewellery and more. Of course you can find usual tourist nonsense too! But give yourself a...More
