Bazaar Prishtina

Bazaar – Weird food market

This is the oldest food bazaar in Prishtina, originally dating back to the 15th century. It has been destroyed and rebuilt a myriad times. This cobblestoned bazaar is definitely not the biggest food bazaar around, but it is very vibrant and definitely worth spending an hour or so at.

The bazaar is full of big colourful vegetables and locally grown fruit, honey, feta cheese and cigarettes. Apart from the food produce, the bazaar sells odd plastic housewares mainly made in China and Turkey, cheap clothes, and flags, mostly Albanian, Kosovan and a few American flags too. It is a very chaotic place.

The vendors are a very friendly lot, always happy to see you and very approachable. The bazaar is a good way to get to know the locals and the way some of us do our groceries here. 

It is worth noting that the bazaar is a lot more interesting in the summer and you should probably lower your expectations in the winter. Not much is grown in Kosovo during winter time.
