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.

Special tip

As a passionate home chef, I really appreciate the Umami spice store.

Nice and modern place to visit and near you could also take a Sauna in a typical place.

its kinda open market, where you can interact with the shopkeeper and they have their handmade product as well, which is inexpensive and different from any retail shop.

Used to be a timemachine for great finds but now that they are redoing it, we're yet to see what becomes of the "new" Balti Jaam Market.

If you want to buy Vladimir Putin's driving licence or just some soviet badges or cheap second hand clothes or freshly picked berries from old babushkas or ... then you are in right place. Although you can get pretty much anything, we couldn't find a soccer ball for my finnish friends once.
