Greece: Modiano Market in Thessaloniki Reopens After Years of Neglect!

agora modiano
The doors to Thessaloniki’s Modiano Market will be opening to the public officially today, Monday (5 Dec), following a radical overhaul of the historic colonnaded emporium, which was condemned as structurally unsound in 2017 after years of abandonment and neglect.
The market first opened in 1925 and is now being relaunched as a “culinary destination,” featuring 117 stores and food stalls.
 
It has been designed by Rena Sakellaridou and Morpho Papanikolaou from the architectural firm Sparch, who worked with restoration specialist Cleopatra Theologidou, civil engineer Athanasios Kontizas and lighting designer Eleftheria Deko.
 
Modiano Market, the “Central Food Market of Thessaloniki,” is not only the largest and most modern covered market but also a social gathering place for interaction and cultural activities. A meeting point that reflects the city’s cultural dynamics.
