In the center of the village Kournas you will find the local shop "Mandali", a place where you can smell, taste, feel and discover the real Cretan products. Barbara, from the Netherlands, opened this shop in 2016 with the aim of making the small traditional village a bit more lively and to support the local farmers.
In the shop, you can buy unique products from local farmers, craftsmen, artists and manufacturers. A unique product in Mandali is the famous original Dutch syrup waffles from the Amsterdam Good Cookies brand, the best, tastiest and crunchiest syrup cookies. You will find one of a kind jewelry, postcards, paintings, candles, mandala gift-cards and other small presents that you will definitely enjoy.
