Kapani Market

The open air Kapani Market is the oldest market place in Thessaloniki. The market place became a site of martyrdom in 1821 when Turks hung five Elders (leaders of the Christian Community) from Thessaloniki on a plane tree in retaliation for the citizens uprising.

Located at the heart of the city center, the market hosts a whole array of shops, from fish and meat to vegetables, fruits, drinks, olives, sweets, nuts, spices, outdoor shops selling lingerie, flowers, clothes and shoes; and restaurants. Throughout the 20th century Kapani was the central and most crowded marketplace in Thessaloniki.

The lively Kapani Market is traditional and therefore offers visitors an incredibly unique experience.
