Neapoli market is on a Thursday morning. Drive up the main street to the square where the buses turn around and then follow the road out of town in the direction of the Lassithi Plateau, after about 1K there is a sharp bend to the left BUT turn right instead and you have found the road for the market.

The entrance to Kritsa Gorge is down a signposted dirt track and there is room to leave a car there.

Happy shopping and enjoy your walk!

I should have waited 24 hours before posting about the market!!!!

We visited Neapoli today and the market site has altered (again). The best way to find it now is to walk from the Lassithi end of the square taking a diagonal route to the right - look out for people walking towards you carrying plastic bags full of produce and you will guess you are on the right road.

There must be problems getting a site that people agree on because this is the 3rd site in the last few years and, to us, it seems the worst one yet.

Nothing spoils the frappe in the Square when shopping is over though; we just sit and watch the world go by - cats waiting for the fish van, buses turning around, trucks stopping so that the drivers can chat whilst oblivious to the chaos they are causing, truck loads of livestock to/from the Plateau and the old men chatting over the latest headlines in their newspapers ^_^
