Keep in mind, that all the above-mentioned shops are located in the modern part of Kerkira. If you want to buy something from the local producers, you’d better go to the Old Town. The shop assistants on Corfu are much less intrusive than in Turkey or Egypt, and no one will disturb you. Usually, you can have a drink or two with the shop owner and to chat a little. You don’t even have to buy anything after that. By the way, you can easily bargain on the market as well as in many local shops.
If you learn a couple of words like “kalimera” (good day), “efharisto” (thank you), “yasas” (goodbye), you will reach an understanding with the shop assistants and win their trust. Remember, you can ask for a 10% discount on the second item – you can always hint at that. There is one more peculiarity of shopping on Corfu: if you like something, but you don’t have enough money, you can leave the name of the hotel and agree on the convenient time.

What local goods should you buy? The most expensive but exciting investment would be jewelry. Gold, silver, gemstones are of a high quality and mostly handmade. A leather jacket will also be an unusual but good bargain. You should know that the model might be modified for your figure at a local studio. The prices are quite reasonable, plus, you could always bargain. Another practical purchase will be highest quality olive oil. Take the one in the metal packaging and check the production date. Also, check the cosmetics made from this product – it’s worth it.
The Corfu people liked The unique product, you can only find on Corfu and nowhere else in Europe, is a kumquat. This peculiar fruit that looks like orange acclimated only here and became the landmark of the island. “Kumquat” liqueur will be a unique purchase. You can buy it in any souvenir shop in Kerkira or other big cities. The bottles can be of a different shape – for example, as an ancient Greek God or the map of the island. There are also alcohol-free products made of kumquat. A sweet tooth will like kumquat jam or marmalade. Those, who prefer deserts, should pay attention to mandolato – a nougat, made of honey or sugar with different kinds of nuts.

You should also buy ouzo – anise vodka, that became a significant part of Corfu as well as a kumquat. If you want something with less alcohol, try limoncello or “Retsina” wine. If you buy alcohol and sweets at the market, it will be cheaper, but not for more, than a dollar. As a souvenir with a unique Greek spirit, bring a marble statuette or a vase with black or red painting, made in ancient style. The works made from olive wood will be a great souvenir. It is not cheap, but it will remind you of Corfu for many years.
