Bit Bazaar


    The market with antiques and antique shops narrates another one of the many stories of Thessaloniki. The Bit Bazaar, the small refugee settlement built in 1928 for the Greek refugees from Asia Minor. It is located between Olympou, Venizelou, Tositsa Streets surrounded by apartment buildings, and hidden from the… indiscreet looks! Its entrances lead to the central square inside the small two-storey buildings. The ground floor shops sell all sorts of antique objects and small furniture, pieces of the city’s past. In recent years atmospheric cafes, meze bars (taverns) and bars with alternative sounds opened in the area and the Bit Bazar became now hangout of young people, especially students.
