Street markets in Greece are called laikes agores (λαϊκές αγορές) in plural, or λαϊκή αγορά (laiki agora) in singular, meaning "people's market". They are very common all over Greece, including the capital, Athens, and its suburbs. Regular (weekly) morning markets sell mostly fresh produce from farming cooperatives - fruit, vegetables, fish and flowers/plants. Some household items and prepared foods are often available.

Hello dear Vasilis
Very nice capture of this fishery market from Athens.
Perfect pov and perfect layout.
My favorite in this scenery is the dark cloudy wintery sky and the orange colors here and there creating a perfect effect.
TFS and best regards

Interesting information. I think, the stalls are not permanent.
