Seen one stall seen them all. No variety same stuff in each stall. Wouldn't go out of my way to make a visit. Great if you just had dinner and to walk through. Love markets but nothing exciting.

This is a shoppers delight. Small boutiques, souvenir shops and cafes line the narrow, pedestrian only streets of the old town of Chania. You can spend an entire afternoon browsing or if you are like me, following your spouse into almost every shop in town....More

There were some shops selling food products but the majority were selling souvenirs and nick knacks. There were also a few unappetizing looking restaurants. As much as I like markets, I did not find this one very appealing.
