Histria is the Latin name for Istria, the largest peninsula in the Adriatic Sea. This heart-shaped sliver of land, captured in our company logo, accounts for one third of tourist arrivals to Croatia and it is just a two hour catamaran ride from Venice. It combines crystal clear, blue Adriatic Sea, beautiful beaches trimmed with old pine trees, ancient Roman ruins, picturesque hilltop villages, and amazing food and wine.
Our warehouse is located in Gardena, California, very close to San Pedro, a city considered to be a heart of Croatian community and home of many descendants of seafarers and fishermen from Dalmatia, islands of Brač, Hvar, Vis, and Korčula. We, at Histria, LLC, believe that Croatian cuisine, like so many other unique and original cuisines, must include authentic elements in order to make that special meal a complete and (for so many people as equally important) familiar experience.
So, if you are looking for the flour that will make your cake “just right,” for that missing recipe ingredient that you were not able to find at regular stores, for a refreshment drink that will take you back to your youth, or if you just want to see what were you parents talking about when they discussed grandma’s food – we are here to help. At HistriaMarkets.com, you will be able to find all the familiar names, from Vegeta and Dalmatian olive oil to Podravka pate and Eva sardines, from Dorina chocolate and Jadro wafers to drinks such as Jamnica and Cedevita…
To truly complete your menu, a glass of authentic wine will complete the experience. At HistriaWines.com, you will be able to find many of very popular beer, wine, and liquor brands such as Badel, Hepok, or Takovo. These brands can be found at HistriaWines.com, an extension of HistriaMarkets.com, the official online storefront for Histria, LLC.
Never the less, we are not limiting our catalog to Croatian products only. A thoroughly ethnic retail store or restaurant will find products from every corner of former Yougoslavia including a bit of surrounding countries like Italy, Hungary, Romania, and Turkey. Our products are also available retail through our storefront or through our local retailers. For wholesale prices or locations of your closes local store where you can buy our products, please contact us and we will be happy to assist you.
We ask of you to check our products offering, order the products you love, and let us know which ones do we currently miss in our selection…. we will do our best to bring them to you.
