Holiday makers usually want to take more than their memories and photographs to take back home. Visitors to Kos often select something for which the Island is famous. Every town in the East Mediterranean seems to have a weekly market; Kos actually has a market building.
The building in Eleftherias Square has external arches with cafes and shops awaiting customers. It is actually a thoroughfare as well. Spices form an important part of the market, together with local produce such as cheese and honey. You will experience such things in the local restaurants.
La Strada in Kos Town offers everything from leather jackets and suits to wallets and handbags.
Konstantinos is a chain that has stores on many parts of the Island. Visitors are likely to find prices vary across Kos with the Town more expensive than elsewhere.
There are many small shops offering everything from jewellery to local crafts. They line the harbour and seafront in Kos.
If you are on Kos towards the end of the season in October you are likely to be able to find real bargains as shops look to get rid of their stock before the winter. Go to Divas and see what we mean.
