Vlali Market (Kapani) - Αγορά Βλάλη (Καπάνι)

The Vlali Market -built in a pseudo-byzantine style imposed by the Hebrard plan after the 1917 Fire- covers a square block between Venizelou Street in the west, Halkeon street in the east, Egnatia street in the north and Ermou street in the south.
It was built exactly where the Arhiravinias Square (= Square of the Archirabbi Residence) stood before the 1917 Great Fire and serves as a food, groceries and clothing market.
The traditionally built structures of the market were severely hit by the 1978 earthquake, a few were deserted for quite a long time, some of them were carefully restored but the market is in constant decline following the historical commercial city centre's general decline trend.
