This really is a lovely initiative by local, ex-pat and international artists and crafters from all over the world and a lovely way to spend a family day out doing a little shopping and bartering and I really hope you'll go along to give them some support!
Not just for hotels, this place caters for everyone who loves to cook ... The stock is extensive, to say the least, and delivery is nationwide, which is why they're favoured by many top hotels, restaurants, bars, cafeterias, apartments and private and domestic homes. I think it's the only place you can go to find just what you need, on every visit!
There's too much to mention, but when it comes to variety the experience shines through, as 'Costi' knows exactly what you'll need, might need, and hope you don't need, so you'll find everything you'll expect from a good corner shop and lots more ... and even better all at locals prices !!!
Constantinos called me to pop in to find out about their new Summer Specials Surprises at Blind Taste in Paralimni ... Greeted with a lovely fresh Arabic Coffee he told me about their plans for the summer that will really make a visit worthwhile ...
As I entered I noticed straight away that the selection on display was extensive, to say the least ... Bobby showed me around; the shop is very deep, everything in sections, well laid out and with some really nice ideas ... There's too much to mention but I'll give you an idea or two worth the visit ...
They specialise in importing foods from all over Europe including; UK, Romania, Russia, Poland, Bulgaria, and even India and all over Asia. So, great choices in Asian style sauces and ingredients and even Basmati rice by the 20 Kg sack for crazy cheap prices.
It's deceiving from the outside, 'Tardis' like, comes to mind, as inside you'll find about 7,000 different labels, everything from postcards to booze and puffs, chocolates, drinks and munchies, to all your basic groceries and fresh fruit and veg, oh, Suntan Lotions and Beachwear, Body Boards and Buckets & Spades, and they're open 24/7, 365 Days a year ... now that's what I call 'convenient' and just what you'll need ;)
The idea was to provide a hire service of all the basic necessities you might need while you're visiting Cyprus or when friends or family are visiting you. I mean, sometimes you just can't pack the kitchen sink ... well don't worry they've got everything from baby cots to push chairs, and baby baths to mobility scooters, and well, you name it they'll have it, and if they haven't got it they'll find it for you ! Trust me, this is an awesome service !
With over 50 stalls in the summer there's everything you'd expect from a thriving market, from a variety of bric-a-brac, souvenirs, hand made pottery, household goods, I.T Services and computer stuff. There's shoes, new and second hand clothes, accessories, cafes and food stalls and even Grimsby's Smokey Pete's Van selling traditional English fish imported from Grimsby of course! Pete has been in the trade over 35 years and specialises in Smoked Haddock, smoked the traditional way in Oak Sawdust ... the aroma is awesome!
