Shopping in Astypalea
For those visitors that are looking to take back some Astipalean souvenirs to cherish memories of their spectacular holiday, on the island, you will find many shopping stores along the harbor. Here you can get some souvenirs like ceramics, hand-woven fabrics and textiles and jewelry.
Be sure to also buy some of the delicious and good quality local products such as thyme honey, hlori cheese, a locally produced spicy cheese known as “kopanisti” and “mizithra” cheese in a basket.
Apart from this you can also get your hands on some fresh, pure butter, the rare and valuable saffron spice and sweet pouggia. These items though will not last long, are particularly filled with Greek flavors that you will not forget.
