One day per week a Farmers' Market takes place in every neighborhood of Athens. A long stretch of a central street is taken over from farmers or their representatives who offer seasonal fruit and vegetables, grains, beans and legumes, several agricultural treasures such as honey, hand-picked herbs, olives and olive oil, vinegar, eggs, etc., etc. There is also a fish section with both fresh and frozen fish and seafood, a couple of florists, and a few vendors selling houseware and affordable clothing.

With a French Filt string bag in ecru in your pocket or handbag, you’ll never need a plastic bag again. As well as being almost endlessly reusable, the ecru string bag is also made from organic cotton. It truly is the original ‘eco’ bag.
It is available in two handle lengths. Choose short handles for a bag to simply carry in the hand, or choose long handles for a bag you can pop over your shoulder.
String bags like these have been used in France for decades and were traditionally used to carry groceries. The strong cotton net bags squish down into almost nothing, so they’re a convenient way to make sure you always have a bag to hand.
