Pazari I Ri Market Tirana. Guide, how to get there, opening hours

Pazari I Ri Market

Born in the far 1931, the Pazari I Ri Market, today, represents one of the reference points of the gastronomic tradition of Tirana.
Merit, above all, of the huge recent investments, which have completely altered its appearance.

In fact, Pazari I Ri is more than just a market. A real attraction, modern and in step with the times, in which we eat at almost all hours.
The current building, modern and welcoming, is the result of a massive redevelopment intervention that hit the market, and all the surrounding area.

Everything has been conceived down to the smallest detail, both in style and architecture, and in terms of hospitality and cleanliness.
Not just a place to buy, but a real point of entertainment in which to sit and eat.

The Pazari I Ri Market welcomes over 130 fruit and vegetable merchants, and numerous fresh fish stalls. Quality really is top of the industry. Naturally, with redevelopment the prices have increased and the genuine atmosphere of the Bazaar of the past has waned.
