Peyia Village Market

Published 17th of November, 2018

Village markets come in all shapes and sizes in Cyprus. The other week, we decided to visit the monthly market in Peyia. The ladies wanted some gift ideas, and I wanted some chutney. This is our report...

Actually, this report is written by my wife, Alex. In the near future, we will be adding a Lifestyle section to the Paphos Life website. Alex will be in charge of that. She is getting her toes wet with this blog.

The various food, clothes, arts and crafts, gifts, and service stalls offered something for everyone; we busied ourselves looking for Christmas gifts to send back to the UK.

Our first stop was a stall displaying wooden crafts and knitted figures including Halloween novelties; our daughter was captivated by a small ghost for €3 while I re-lived my early childhood when I saw a Dougal dog.
