The “Paga” in Gialos Is Bringing New Energy to Mykonos Island

Live an authentic Myconian experience.

Providing an original taste of everything that this blessed land has to offer, this exclusive spot at Mykonos Town introduces every traveler to the very soul of the island.

If there is one habit that’s hard to break, it’s the street market that local fishermen hold every morning in the area of Gialos. As long as you get there early enough to enjoy the “paga” display, the fresh fish and “baksevanika” – fresh vegetables sold in crates by local producers straight from their own gardens, their “baxedes”. By the time the visitors wake up from a night of hard partying everything will have disappeared and the stands will be shiny and clean. Everything here happens early in the morning. If you are looking to find authentic Mykonos, you just have to sacrifice some hours of sleep and get to the “entrance” to the town. There, you will easily discern who the “morning people” of the land are, who don’t change habits easily.

Discover simple gastronomical treasures such as fresh eggs, courgette flowers, purple amaranth (a type of green), brown-eyed Mykonos beans (black-eyed peas) and aromatic plants.

Gialos was once the heart of the area, but to this day tradition is still alive and kicking here. Even if one cannot enjoy local products, they can discover gastronomical treasures such as courgette flowers, purple amaranth (a type of green), brown-eyed Mykonos beans (black-eyed peas), plums, and aromatic plants such as oregano, thyme, fennel, spearmint, sage and marjoram.
