As every neighbourhood in Athens, Kypseli has its own farmer’s market: aka “Laiki”. This market is open once a week and most people prefer it as there they find the most value for money vegetables, fruits, meat, fish and even honey, eggs etc.
I like these markets because I can find anything I need but also because it’s fun to walk around making jokes with the sellers. If you go there you can’t help but notice the shouting. The sellers are trying to sell their stuff by shouting about how beautiful the customer is and how she should get these cherries to look even better or about how cheap their stuff is.
Dare to interact with the “Laiki” sellers if you have a strong sense of humor.
Extra tip as rightly pointed by the co-spotter Dimitris Hall for Nea Smyrni farmer’s market, is to go there at the end of the market around 14:00- 14:30. As the market is closing prices get remarkably lower.
If you are in the area of Kypseli, this will suit you just right. If not, it’s still worth a visit as long as you combine it with a walk to the nearby Fokionos Negri street and St. George square (Ag. Georgiou).
