By: | Date: May 23, 2023

Shopping in Corfu is a cosmopolitan experience while at the same time reminiscent of the Corfiot markets of the 19th century. You will find upscale designer items, handcrafted art pieces, and traditional gifts unique to Corfu.

Handcrafted Jewelery

Unique pieces of handcrafted gold and silver jewelry are made by skilled artists and sold at reasonable prices. The Greek meandros pattern is very popular as are replicas of museum pieces. A nice selection of pieces can be found at Iraklis Jewelery at 26 St. Spiridon Street, Corfu Town. Ceramics is also a traditional craft in Corfu that dates back to ancient times.

Local and Natural Products

Olive trees are important in Greek heritage and mythology. After all, it was the olive tree that Athena gave to the Greeks. Be on the lookout for wooden crafts made from olive wood in family-run workshops. D'Oliva, located at 26 St. Spiridon Street, is a family-run store that has been selling handmade art from olive wood for over 50 years.

Shopping for souvenirs is most pleasant in Old Town, given its picturesque atmosphere and the number of shops. Kumquats, olive oil, and honey are some of Corfu's local delicacies. Kumquat liqueur and jam are found all over the island and both make excellent souvenirs.

Nikifóros Street

This street is a bustling shopping street that will take you to St. Spiridon Church. It takes its name from Nikiforos Theotoki, a scientist, and archbishop. The street begins at a large square by the sea, close to the east side of the New Fort and less than a 1 mile from the cruise ship port. It runs through the heart of the Old Town taking your directly to the Liston and Spianada.
