City's most modern
Balti Jaam Market52
Why locals love it
Only a few antique shops on the top floor remind us of the former Balti Jaam market now, as it went through a massive remake and now hosts vendors from farm food and fresh produce to ethnic specialty stores. You'll find anything from Italian mozzarella to Georgian wines and everything in between.
Why you should visit it
Besides shopping for fresh food you'll find gifts, souvenirs, local handicraft and design, second-hand items and even antique furniture. In the middle of it all, there is a regular supermarket and a pharmacy as well. Don't skip the street food section with many stalls serving burgers, vegan food, Japanese ramen, bao buns and other yummy stuff.
As a passionate home chef, I really appreciate the Umami spice store.
