It’s nice to combine your shopping with the special delicacies you can find in the same streets. “Loukoumades” with honey and the famous bougatsa (pie filled with cream) will make even an outstanding shopping bill look sweeter! Beyond the clothes stores, you can find popular art stores and the traditional knife stores where you can buy the famous Cretan knives.
In the lively traditional market in the 1866 street, you can find products for making your own Cretan meal. On the same street and off the main streets there are many small shops which sell local products and many gifts shops (some of them with really strange gifts).
