i was staying in a hotel literally minutes from the Central Market, so spent a fair bit of time wandering the aisles, having lunch, purchasing goodies and checking out the vendors and craft stalls. I found the vendors friendly, and prices very reasonable.

Did not find anything unique but more like a tourist trap selling overpriced souvenirs. Food stalls selling local dishes which we tried a few and were disappointed. Could be because we have been to better ones in other countries.

Historic town market with food vendors and craft stalls. A few restaurants. A great place for paprika and chocolates and to pick up souvenirs.

Great market place. Large selection of fresh and takeaway food. Large portion sizes for takeaway that could easily be shared by 2 people. Stall holders sell similar products that your typical tourist is after but don’t be afraid to haggle the price. Worked for me...More

The old building is just lovely! If you like to buy little trinkets and traditional foods, this might be more enjoyable to you. The architecture makes it a nice place to pop into if you are in the area.

Depends what souvenirs, the foods cheaper then England & you can get a bottle of wine for £2! I'd say £100 if you're not planning on eating out (gyro & pizza takeaways are cheap #yummy)
