The Varvakeio meat and fish market in downtown Athens, Greece, recently got a thumbs up from David Rosengarten, renowned American chef, food and travel writer.

“Whenever Greeks meet in public, a party-like atmosphere ensues! I’ve seen this at hundreds of open-air dining tables… and, also, at Greece’s great markets,” Mr. Rosengarten recently wrote in the Huffington Post.

The renowned chef even compares the Varvakeio market to the old Les Halles in Paris: “The big downtown market in Athens is among my faves: early-morning bustle reminiscent of the old Les Halles in Paris… plus coffee and eating and drinking!”

Mr. Rosengarten adds that the Varvakeio market “is ringed by dining establishments,” which he cannot resist, even if it is 9am!
