Going to the Market
There's a huge Farmer's Market in Thessaloniki every Thursday, and we went for the first time last week. The prices are GREAT, so we've decided to make this a regular Thursday morning outing. We went again this Thursday with both our backpacks to really load up for the week. I don't know for sure, but my impression is that the food is from small, local farmers. Durkas -- you would love it! They are probably "organic" without even knowing that it's something special. You get to pick out your own eggs (which are delicious, by the way) from a big table full and take them home in your own egg containers. On either side, some of the more entrepreneurial vendors are shouting out things like "three, three, three for a euro!", etc. It's quite an experience!
