Supermarkets in Athens

Supermarket shelf

From country to country there are particular differences between supermarkets. While a lot of products and brands are today common to all supermarkets, it is no secret that products flavor or presentation may differ according to customer needs and expectations. Greek supermarkets are no exception to that rule.

Greek cuisine is a Mediterranean cuisine which is mainly based on olive oil, fresh vegetables, wine, Greek cheese, and a big variety of spices. Of course, supermarkets will provide all these ingredients. Olive oil shelves in a Greek supermarket are quite important in size offering a wide variety of Greek brands. Needless to say, you won't find any Italian or Spanish olive oil in the Greek market. Other important shelves are those with beans, lentils and chickpea which are used in well known soup recipes. It a traditional Greek family it is custom to have these soups on Wednesday and Friday of ever.

In general, the Greek supermarket will offer all products for a household that cooks at home on daily basis. Thus, at the exception of Lidl supermarket, refrigerated foods are limited in comparison with a French or an American supermarket. This also applies to prepackaged meats, cheese, and various Italian meats (Ham, salami etc.). These products are usually found at the butcher department store or cheese stand where customers get served from qualified employees.

Although cooked food can be found in some supermarkets, it is still not very popular. Indeed, one would prefer to use a take home restaurant delivery or a fast food restaurant. Prepared food in general limited to big supermarkets or hypermarkets.

As for fish, which is also an important ingredient of Mediterranean cuisine, fresh fish is widely more popular, but of course more expensive. Big supermarkets have a dedicated department store for fish. Still, buying fish from the fish shop, or the fish market is more common.

Lidl

[ Locate on map ]

Lidl lidl logo Lidl is a low cost market that used to be snubbed by the Greek middle and upper class before the economic crisis. The gloomy atmosphere of the market, plus a majority of foreign customers, had all to discourage the domestic clientele. With wages going down the latest years, this behavior has changed. Also, Lidl has managed to attract new clientele with new marketing strategy, new products, and special offers.

To start with marketing, two celebrity Greek chefs Lazarou and Skarmoutzos are hired to present on kouzinalidl.gr their recipes with ingredients from Lidl market. The rich presentation of each recipe with video and text is very appealing.

As for products, it’s mainly a mix of local Greek and German products. Special weekly offers can be found in the market catalog that can also be consulted online.

Products sold at Lidl are not limited to food. There are clothes, small home utilities and DYI tools and home maintenance material. However, the stocks of these are limited and tend to disappear quickly because of their low price.

As for wine, there is the lately a selection of 30 bottles of French red and white wine with prices ranging from 3.5€ to 20€. Of course, Greek wine can also be found except for the well known wine domains such as ‘Hatzimichalis’ or ‘Repanis’.

  2. Hello! Thanks for sharing! On September I will visit Athens with my children for one month, so this article will be very helpful for me, as I will have to cook a lot!
