Prinos Street Market

Located on the northwest coast of Thassos is the major port of Skala Prinos. Each Monday morning, you'll find locals and tourists wandering through the Prinos Sreet Market. The market offers a selection of fresh fruit and vegetables, as well as a good assortment of nuts. Leather goods are also available from the market, as well as shoes and clothes. As with most markets of this kind there are seldom changing rooms to use for trying on clothes so shoppers have to try on what they can at the stall, or guess their size. The market is small enough to feel quaint and friendly but large enough to have a good bustle and selection of goods. Skala Prinos also has some really lovely sandy beaches with shallow, clear, calm waters which are perfect for children and have great views of the mainland. It is wonderful to pop to one of the beaches after a quick exploration of the market for a refreshing swim.
