VEGETABLE MARKET, HERAKLION, CRETE, GREECE RM
PATRICK FORGET/© PATRICK FORGET
The central market of Iráklion is an exhilarating mix of tourist shops and traditional stalls that don’t seem to have changed in years. Old-fashioned butchers and grocers sit side by side with bakers and cheese mongers. You’ll find it nearly impossible to resist buying a sweet melon or some briny olives, and the bustling atmosphere is suitably authentic.
