A one-stop shop of the best and most iconic Albanian products is finally here! Edua, one of the many shops inside the newly buzzing Castle of Tirana contemporary bazaar, offers high-quality, locally-made Albanian products. These locally-produced items have been grouped together in one place, where it all translates to a wonderful shopping experience.
You will find a great variety of the most in-demand, quality foods along the shelves of this shop. Extra virgin olive oil produced by the wonderful Subashi refinery, raki made from the best Moscato white grapes of Lundra, exquisite organic teas from the northern mountainous region of Puka, the famous liquors of Përmet, traditionally delicious gliko from Gjirokastra, the scrumptious jufka pasta from Dibra, plenty of select wines from Albanian and Kosovar wineries, and countless other 100% organic, local products.
Created by the Ministry of Agriculture, Edua has the greatest selection of homegrown and produced products you can find. Next time you find yourself in the area – if you are visiting Toptani Center, the Castle of Tirana or taking a leisurely stroll along the promenade – make sure to stop by this delicious shop, as well.
