One of the most traditional markets of Thessaloniki, Kapani, serves consumers’ needs ever since Ottoman occupation. It’ s an essential visiting spot for those interested in the city’s gastronomic history and evolution because through its hospitable alleys, with the two-storey buildings and the little shops, time seems to have stood still. The great variety of products, such as meat, fish, spices, travel equipment, kitchen utensils, clothing, shoes, ecclesiastical and touristic items etc, as well as low prices and location in the city’s centre, make Kapani a very popular destination all day long. The best chance to blend in with the locals and feel Thessaloniki’s beat.
