Today, high-quality local products are be found in every corner of the island but also shops, which keep alive the tradition of past centuries.
Handmade jewels, ceramics, wood-carved objects, wine, honey, koum quat, pure olive oil, green soap, delicious delicatessen and the tsitsimpira (a type of ginger beer) are some of the traditional products you will find in abundant quantities and at good prices.
With typical Mediterranean characteristics and Venetian influences, Corfu’s cuisine bears witness to the island’s exceptional cultural influences.
The single-crop farming of the olive has endured since its imposition in the period of the Venetian rule. As a result, Corfu’s landscape is dominated by immense olive groves.
Abundant oil and high quality wine from the dry-soil slopes are present every day on the table.
Delicious fish from the crystal clear Ionian Sea waters, local fruits and vegetables and first quality cheese products from small producers, guarantee unique culinary experiences. Don’t miss a stroll in the island’s outdoor markets to experience images, tastes and smells from Corfu’s countryside!
