Antique shops and vintage clothing in two outlets share the upstairs with endless stalls of cheap Chinese textiles. Fresh fruit and vegetables are sold both in front of the market and inside where the most interesting shop sells all kinds of fish. Food prices in Estonia have already risen so much that there is no need to carry it over to Finland.

It is new, has varied products, clean, well organized and all of choices you could possibly want. Huge upstairs with clothing, grocery store downstairs, and lots of food vendors with enough seating. We loved the experience near Creative City and everyone in my group got food from a different kiosk. We enjoyed dinner here and walked back to Old Town easily.

Just a few minutes walk from L'Ermitage hotel, just a minute or so behind the Train station. A mass of market stalls and shops selling anything and everything. Sweet shops, craft stores, a huge Flea market crammed with antiques, street food of all flavours, meats, cheeses, fruit and vegetables, you name it they've got it. Clothes stalls, furniture, shoes, bags, etc etc. Well worth a visit. Go on, give it a go....

Really recommend the Balti Jaam Market with a modern design. The variety of little booths and occasional food trucks provide a breakfast or lunch opportunity for everyone! Lovely selection of beautiful seasonal fresh vegs, herbs, fruits and a big inviting sections of meat/fish. If you want to get inspired just wander around this market. On the top floor you find an unexpected treasury. Fine handcrafted goods and Eastern European antique pearls that are not easily found in Western Europe. The top floor also contains a small beer brewery with a terrace that includes a nice view over the area.

My wife, 12- year old son and I stayed in July 2019 for 7 days. A fantastic city and people.

We only found out about the relatively new Balti Jaam Market, just at the northern tip and across the road from the Old Town, about 4 days in. It's about a 10-15 minute walk from Raekoja Plats... and a pleasant walk as you go through the Old Town. We all wish we'd found it sooner, so that we could benefit from its offerings from start to end of our visit. Great fresh fruit, meats, cheeses, yogurts -- everything you'd find at this surprisingly large and covered market.

It is bright, clean, tons of selection and even great restaurants, with good beer choices and new Estonian/Nordic cuisine. Lots of friendly faces.

We loaded up on fresh Estonian blueberries, kefir, honey, cheese, bread and sausages. And, of course, much cheaper than in the old town. Awesome!

TIP: There is a great sausage shop in the middle too just about 40m into the entrance. I think it was called "VorstiAbi" :)

Head isu!!!.... and

Happy trails!

We were fortunate enough to stay close to this market in July - berry and fruit season in Estonia.
Blackcurrants, redcurrants, strawberries, and sour cherries were in season. What a delight! It doesn't get any fresher than this. Local varietals are incredibly fragrant and flavorful! Besides the farmer stalls, there is an organic store selling eggs, dairy, vegetables, etc. We were also pleased to find a small store with local cheeses - somewhat similar to Havarti, prepared with herbs. There are many other stores, including those selling fish and meat.
This market was one of the highlights of our visit to Tallinn.

Well worth walking over to this market especially if you want chocolate or alcohol since it has a supermarket. Supermarket prices were half of what other places were charging in the tourist area. Easy to get to as well.

Was in Tallinn for 7 days, and on 7 of those days we came here.
Its like an old Russian soviet flea market, and I'm sure if you are reading this perhaps you already have read up on balti jaam.
Now the market is in two sections: bric a brac at the back, with piles of cheap clothes and a few indoor, and then on the opposite side like market place selling nasty clothing, cheap sneakers, bags, and food.

The bric a brac second hand were some gems. I got vintage asics, a vintage travelling coat and various other bits and Bob's.
Was superb.

In fact, I loved it. It was dirt cheap.

Here is a tip for you: before crossing the railway to get here, there is a samosa truck, go inside the market and there on the left is a woman selling pastries... Most are 0.40 cent and the croissants are gorgeous. They have also other random Estonian foods ( we picked random ones as we didn't know the name or translation) and because they were cheap we didn't mind if we didn't like them.

EXCELLENT.

The main floor is typical food market for the most part, but upstairs a lot of "collectibles" and clothes and such. Good way to spend an hour in the neighbourhood.

This large market is just across the street from the Tallinn train station. In addition to a variety of restaurants (it got high marks from me for the vegan restaurant on the lower level), it has many stores where locals shop for food and clothing. Of particular interest to us were the antiques stores on the upper level. These offered an engaging look into Estonian life in past decades, including during the Soviet era. We spent a happy few hours here, and would have spent more time if we could have. The market is covered and has clean restroom facilities on multiple levels.
