Thessaloniki is a known shopping destination. Apart from the shopping centers and malls the city has many smaller independent stores and boutiques that extend in commercial streets in the city center.
Thessaloniki, however, is ideal for those who wish to experience authentic shopping. In the city’s open markets visitors can purchase rare spices, fruits, vegetables and various local delicatessens. The most known traditional markets of the city are the open public market of Kapani and Modiano Market, which are both located down-town Thessaloniki.
