The Museum of Greek Gastronomy aspires to fill its spaces with unique flavours, local products and traditional cooking methods and recipes from every era and area of the country with fresh ingredients straight from the central Athenian market.

Athens Central Market

The building has been recently renovated by the Ministry of Culture and attracts most of the Athenians to buy fresh natural products such as spices, cheese, dried fruits, olives and olive oil. We invite you for a stroll around the market to gain this unique experience and even buy the ingredients to cook your own Greek cuisine recipe.
