This shopping tour gets you closer to authentic traditions of Corfu by visiting some of the oldest commercial stores in the old and the new Corfu Town. Some of these stores were established decades ago and still remain unchanged, reminding us of bygone eras. Some others have changed with the times; yet they still sell their signature products, which are popular with locals and travellers alike.

Your passionate tour guide will show you around the local market, where there are stores that have stood the test of time and some of them are one-of-a-kind. From well-known pastry and coffee grinding shops, cafés and milk shops to tavernas and celars with local wine; we will also spot butcher shops with locally made charcuterie, stores with traditional products such as kumquat, Corfu olive oil and honey, ceramic artworks and olive wood utensils. The tour also includes a visit at the reputable Patounis Family soap workshop. Find out about their interesting background and history, and discover their signature products.
