LOCAL SHOPS AND FOODS

No worries. Paros has just about everything. In Paroikia, within a few minutes walk, are four good-sized super markets. A nice one on the waterfront is located just down from HISA student housing. Small, local markets are everywhere. In addition to individual vegetable and fruit markets, there is a farmer’s market at the port, just down from where the fishing boats dock with the night’s catch.

There is also a well stocked international market, with Asian and Mexican food, as well as bio-foods. Five modern pharmacies can fill nearly any prescription, also offering a wide selection of health and cosmetic products. No need to over-pack; there are numerous clothing shops, from fancy boutiques to a cut-rate Chinese shop. Paros is served by all international delivery services; UPS, DHL, and FEDEX.
