We 'll meet on the edge of the Bazaar near the municipal cemetery and we are going to start with a small introduction about the Bazaars and what is about in Greece and all over that region (Minor Asia and further more) from the past till the present time. Then, we 'll walk!!(it's not far don't worry!) All the way from the fish sellers and the kiosk with the clothes till the fresh fruit and vegetables, meanwhile get ready to meet the honey producers and diary products sellers, the flower vendors and many more. During all these we are going to have a cultural approach to the real life of the island and how the local people live, move and interact each other!Also, you will get an idea of how locals cook and eat their daily meals. What ingredients/products like to use and how they use them in their kitchen. All the activity is 100% secure & safe. You may take as many pictures as you like and I will help you to do so as well. Keep some cash with you, just in case you would like to buy something from the Bazaar. I will explain to you how the market run and some tricks that the sellers do depending on the circumstances so as to sell their products (They are marketing experts although they don't have such degree). In the end we 'll end up in the same place we started our tour and you may ask me anything you want and freely continue your walk around or take a break in a cafe nearby.
My field of studies is in Social Anthropology & History and additionally I have a degree in Tourism. I have done a personal survey in Bazaar ("laiki agora") and its way of running. I have experienced many Bazaars or freshfood (farmers) market as it is called, in various cities in Greece since my childhood and I am the right person to walk you around the market kiosks. Moreover, we will talk about the life in the island besides the touristic section. It would be a view of the "real life" in the island of Rhodes. All you have to do is to follow me around this traditional market!
We will be in the Zefyros area where the main Bazaar of the city takes place every Saturday morning.
