Markets - Working Hours

Thassos has nothing to envy of the markets of other major urban centers, as there are dozens of designer stores, mainly in the capital of the island, as well as picturesque little shops. Each visitor can obtain easily whatever he needs. We recommend you to purchase local products such as spoon sweets, honey, olives and olive oil, either for you or as a gift. They can be found in stores around the island or by individual producers, who trade them outside their homes. If you desire something different then in Thassos’s stores you will surely find a great variety of souvenirs that will remind you of your unforgettable vacations.
