Rethymnon flea market

Thursdays are never the same in Rethymno!

Just a five minute drive from the village of Prines, the flea market in the central square of the town, wakes up all your senses. The aromas and colours of the fruits and vegetables from the Cretan land always give you the inspiration for a tasteful and healthy Mediterranean meal that you end up sharing with friends in the evening.

Rethymnon, the flea market

It is not just the people of Crete who shop from this market. Tourists also benefit from the great quality and the cheaper prices, with one thing on their mind, to taste Crete while being there. Who can blame them; it is so hard to resist the temptation. The ripe tomatoes lay right next to the olives and the cheese. You do not need to be a chef to figure out what will be on the next menu. After all, the Mediterranean cuisine is all about good quality ingredients and imagination.

Follow your senses ... your nose is driving you to the freshest of vegetables, your tongue to the vibrant taste of the local cheese and your mind is craving for the purest wine.

Come and get inspired too!!!
