Shopping in Kos Island - authentic goods, best outlets, malls and boutiques

Windmill in Kefalos, Kos You shouldn’t go to Kos exclusively for shopping. There are no outlets here, and shopping centers do not offer a very large assortment of brand clothes and shoes. However, during the sale season from the middle of January to the end of February and from the middle of July to the end of August, you can buy something good from the products of well-known world companies at very attractive prices. But still on Kos you should better buy products of the local manufacturers and the products that you won’t find anywhere else.

When going shopping, keep in mind that most stores do not work on Sunday, and in the hot summer months from 1 p.m. till 5 p.m. almost everything is closed for siesta. Here, as in othermost popular tourist destinations, you can bargain at the markets or in small family stores. Please note that in Greece, the pledge of successful trading is not pressure, but benevolence. Say hello to the seller in his native language, start a conversation about the beauty of the island, the historical past and common roots – and almost certainly you will win his sympathy. If you can’t agree on the right price anyway, try to leave. The seller, who is ready to concede, will stop you.
Keep in mind that at the market or in small shops, they accept only cash. Most often, you can pay with the card only in the supermarkets. If you want to buy clothes and shoes from the Greek manufacturers, then go to the center of the capital. It is here, where all the shops of large local firms are concentrated. If you want, you can buy high-quality jewelry for a small fee. The masters of the island are famous for their silver works, but rings, earrings, bracelets and pendants made of gold and precious and semiprecious stones are not worse. In the part of the workshops, it is possible to order an ornament from the materials you like and observe the process of its production yourself. Copyright www.orangesmile.com

Fish skeletons, dried sponges and starfish, figurines from olive wood, shells of various shapes and sizes are sold in local souvenir shops In large quantities.

In addition to oil, the fruits of the olive tree are also sold in large quantities.
Tomato jam or candied tomatoes can become an original delicacy. If your way home is not too long, then get at least some local goat cheese – its taste is truly unique. Pay attention to halva, nougat, and honey. The local spices will also be a practical purchase. If we talk about inedible iconic souvenirs, then fabric, paper or a scroll with the Hippocratic Oath will be a good choice. Repeated by doctors all over the world until now, the oath was born right on Kos, and therefore its text is printed here, cut out, embroidered, and applied on a variety of surfaces in any way.

Among alcoholic beverages, it is worth noting not only the common Greek raki and ouzo, but also soumada, which is based on almonds, and the fragrant and thick shiraz. There is no reason to bring back home the local beer, it’s taste does not differ much from any other, but the wine is definitely worth buying. Assyrtiko, Moschofilero, Mandilaria – all these varieties have been made from local grapes for centuries. If you want, you can buy a bottle of Rakomelo, a drink made from raki, cloves, cinnamon and honey.
