July products

When you go on your morning walk at Emporeio, you can come across one of the farmers who sell their produce in front of the village's main church. You approach to observe the seasonal vegetables and fruit - but to your surprise, most of them are strange! So here are a few words about what to expect at this season and how local products look like, due to the volcanic, dry soil.
- Small cherry tomatoes. The perfect season for the tiny, crumbly but delicious Santorini tomatoes.
- Katsounia. The peculiar local cucumbers, which become melons when they are ripe - both are sold at this time.

- Small but refreshing watermelons.
- White aubergines, which taste sweet and are great when baked in the oven with feta cheese and tomato.
- Delicious potatoes.
