Anywhere within 40 min. of DC that sells Turkish Delight (lokum)?

They only had one type of Turkish Delight at the little grocery store next to Balkan Grill; I'm looking for somewhere that has a decent variety of Turkish Delight, not just pistachio or plain. I particularly enjoy rosewater, mastic, mint, and raspberry flavored lokum. Does Cenan's in Vienna have it?

Balkan Grill
5902 N Kings Hwy, Alexandria, VA 22303

  1. The Amity Market in Fairfax has several different types of Turkish Delight. They are located in the Fairfax shopping center, just east of Rte. 123 (Chain Bridge Rd.) on Lee Highway. They are next door to Minerva's, a very good Indian restaurant.

    1. Yekta Market in Rockville always has a large selection.

      1. Medietteranean Bakery and Cafe on S. Pickett in Alexandria,22304. Amazing place!

          How about economy candy in the village? Check them out next time you are in NYC. Russ and Daughter and Katz's are right there, too.

            I'm sorry, can someone explain to me, using other than a transporter beam, how to get from DC to the village in less than 40 minutes?
