has an impressive variety of goods to offer shoppers, from top designer
labels and exquisite jewelry to fine antiques and superb leather
goods. Shops are open Monday, Wednesday and Saturday 9am-3pm, Tuesday
and Thursday from 9am to 8pm. Tourist stores stay open from 9am
to 10pm 7 days a week. In high season (May to October) I have never
encountered a closed store. Crete is famous for its original jewelry
designs in gold and silver - and it is very competitively priced.
- Here are things you may want to shop for:
- Leather - bags, belts, sandals, wallets
- Woven goods
- Local honey - a fabulous taste
- Olive oil - distinctly different from Italian
- Raki (tsikoudhia)
You will not want to miss the indoor market in town called Agora.
It is designed in the shape of a crucifix and it offers a plethora
of stalls selling everything! You really get the flavor of Chania
and its people here!
