In Naxos, it is worth buying local products, mainly dairy, as well as items of folk art, while the aromatic citrus liqueur made on the island is also quite famous. The island's famous cheese is called "arseniko", which is hard to find due to the fact that it requires a long time to mature. You can also buy myzithra, anthotyro whey cheese, buttermilk and the delicious Naxos graviera cheese from the cooperative on the island. Also look for "askoudes", exceptional olives and local raki. At the village of Chalki, you will find excellent spoon sweets and homemade jams, as well as a few shops selling lovely souvenirs. The Women's Cooperative of Apeiranthos offers fine examples of weavings made on looms, or "krevataria", as they are known locally. The art has been handed down from generation to generation and the weavings of Apeiranthos are known for their detailed decoration and utility. In Chora, you will find a variety of shops with clothing and jewellery.
With its fertile land and sea, the Naxos cuisine has much to offer in the way of gastronomic experiences. The variety of cheeses will overwhelm you, while the salads you find here are one of a kind. The products and specialities of Naxos stand out with their rich variety, and you can sample something different in each area. In mountainous Apeiranthos, try the special dishes with a meat base, such as boiled goat called "zoula" and "patoudo", which is lamb or goat stuffed with aromatic greens. The speciality dish in Melanes is cockerel in tomato sauce and thick pasta, seasoned with cinnamon, while another island speciality is "giachnada", made with various vegetables, potatoes and tomato sauce. For dessert, try the "melachrini" walnut cake and the spoon sweets.
