Athens Central Market (6)

The Athens Central Market has to be one of the most interesting places in Athens. It is worth visiting. It is a great places to see how unique everyday life  is in Athens. The market in located in  a central street in Athens. It is mostly housed in very large build with stalls all  around the build as well as across from it. Across the street is where grain stalls are. Around  the outside the building is mostly fruit. On the inside its sea food, and in the heart of the market is where the butchers are located. When I visited the market it was later in the after noon, so it was not as busy as usual. But everyday I would walk past this market, and in the morning it was  bustling. Interacting with the vendors was a really cool experience. The fish stalls had wide variety of sea food. They had Squid, Octopus, calamari, and a bunch of species of fish. According to the vendors all the fish where caught that day in the Mediterranean. The nicest and most talkative vendors where the butchers. They would ask where I was from and they would tell me about all the fresh cuts of meat they had.  But they where  also very pushy.  Its of really strange when somebody is being very push while sharping knives.
