I've always wanted to visit an authentic Greek farmers market (this is a pic of the one I go to in Toronto, I love it!). Are there any good ones in downtown Athens? If so, where are they and do you have any tips?

This is a video of a farmers market in Crete but you get the idea! Everything is so fresh, if you like the farmers market in Toronto you will love the ones in Greece.

There's a Farmer's Market in Athens, Greece - I think it might called the Laiki Farmer's Market... and it is very similar to a typical Greek outdoor market. All over Greece, it is easy to find a Farmer's Market no matter where you are, as when people have surplus fruits, vegetables, and other products to sell, they tend to sell it wherever they are.

This is the laiki in Exarcheia on Kallidromiou Street. It's about a 25min walk from the more touristy areas like Monastiraki or you can just take a taxi for 4-5 euro. You can also spend the day in the area if you like, have lunch at Rosalia on Valtetsiou, slowly wind your way back to the touristy centre via Themistokleous and stop for a cake at I Cake You on the way back.

Great Athens Restaurants for Dining

I love the restaurants in Athens - they're just so amazing. The chefs in the city do a great job giving a variety of foods from Greek cuisine, from the old to the new. I found this link with a nice list of nine restaurants that I plan to try. What do you guys thing? Have you been to any of these?

Restaurants with a View in Athens

I am putting together a list of restaurants to try in Athens and I want to have multiple moods on it... Sometimes, I want to dine purely with a view, sometimes I just want a really great meal.

I found this article - what do you guys think of these places in the article? Do you know of any great places with a view in Athens? Ideally the food will also be excellent:


Sometimes I don't have luck with TripAdvisor places, because I am not sure the people voting are necessarily locals...

Researching the Temple of Poseidon

I am going to visit Greece soon to take some photos and enjoy the country in general (I am a photographer). One of the stops I plan to make is to the Temple of Poseidon and I was told to go at sunset. What do you guys think of that advice?

Anyway, ahead of the trip, I thought I would research the place a bit.... Does anyone have anything to add?
