PAGE 1(Greek Food) - PAGE 2(Greek Fish) - PAGE 3(Fruits & Vegetables)
Rhodes Island has a local production of fruits and vegetables, and most of them very tasty and naturally grown and ripped. Most of the vegetable and fruit production in Rhodes is done in the west to southwestern side of the island, mainly in Mandriko, Kritinia, Embona villages, where the land is appropriate for farming. Local produce includes vegetables like Olives, Tomatoes, Cucumbers, Zucchini, Onions, Garlic, Potatoes, Eggplants, Rocket, Lettuce.
Fruits that are cultivated in Rhodes include Grapes, Watermelons, Melons, Peaches, Pears, Nectarines, Oranges, Mandarins, Plums.
The local fruits and vegetables are usually traded through the fruit and vegetable markets or the public markets that are held every day at different locations, and producers sell them directly to the public or food related businesses. The local products are sold when they are ripped properly and naturally for immediate consumption, that's why they always taste much better than any imported fruits or vegetables that are kept in refrigeration for days. The local products are usually consumed the same day they are picked from the producers.
The local producers you will find in the public markets are many small businesses, usually family businesses which again gives a better quality with less processing of the products.
Usually the more dirty (not nice and shinny) the fruits/vegetables look, the more natural they are... When you visit a public market, in most cases you can try before you buy... The prices are displayed and are usually per kilo of product (unless stating per item), and they are not negotiable.
You can also find fruits and vegetables in Super markets and Mini markets, but you need to ask before you buy if they are locally produced, to ensure you get the best of Rhodes fruits and vegetables!!
