Emporio (Greek: Εμπόριο, Bulgarian: Емборе, Embore) is a village in the northern Kozani regional unit, Greece. It was the seat of the municipality Mouriki. The population was 1003 in 2001.
According to Ottoman document from 1626–1627, there were 71 Christian households in the village in the first half of the 17th century.
There were three Bulgarian schools in Emporio in the beginning of the 20th century.
In 1913, after the Balkan Wars and with the conditions of the Treaty of Bucharest, this area of Macedonia became part of Greece and local Bulgarians were oppressed by Greek guerillas. As a result, many Bulgarians from Emporio emigrated to Bulgaria.
