The new face of Athens Central Market

A daring intervention that could change the character of the city centre and the face of the city

The Athens Central Market, or Varvakios, as it is better known, is one of the most important landmarks of Greece’s capital city. It has been in operation since 1886 and has survived all of the challenges of contemporary Greek history; the unique covered structure houses a retail food market.

In recognition of the problematic situation at the Varvakios market, and its potential, a study was elaborated for the Central Market and Fishery Organizations by AMBIO SA Development Consultants.

An article on this subject was published on the daily newspaper KATHIMERINI.
