Plunge into the world of Greek food and its associated culture as you explore the culinary highlights of Athens. In the capable hands of your local food expert, visit the beating heart of the city’s food scene—the Central Market—and enjoy sampling some tasty offerings along the way.

As you begin heading down Athinas Street, see the range of cookware stores that line the avenue, and examine some of the tools of the trade that locals use to master the Greek-style of cooking. There is a wide variety of fresh produce here too. Pop into a bakery to admire the range of breads, stroll around a vegetable market to observe what’s in season, and explore a cheese shop as you break down the stereotype that Greek food is all about feta. Don’t just trust your eyes and nose, take the offer of a tidbit or two and give in to the tempting flavors.

Turn into the main concourse of Varvakios Agora (the Central Market) to watch the multitude of butchers and fishmongers vying for trade and displaying their wares. Listen as your guide explains the use of meat and fish in Athenian dishes as your foodie journey from farm to fork is complete.
