Tallinn’s Jaama Turg (also known as Russian Market) is the market located next to the Tallinn railway station
. It’s worth visiting if you want to see something other than just Tallinn Old Town. We recommend taking cash with you, as most of the shops don’t have terminals for card payments. In addition, we advise you to take care of your belongings and blend in with the crowd. We have visited Jaama Turg dozens of times without any problems but looking like a clueless tourist might increase the probability of getting into problems, but otherwise you’ll be fine. 🙂
You can get fruit, vegetables, fresh fish and meat for pretty affordable prices from Jaama Turg. In autumn there are a lot of shops selling chanterelles, which are one of the most popular mushrooms in Estonia and Nordic countries. In addition to food stands, you can find small stalls, which basically sell everything imaginable. The other main market place in Tallinn is Keskturg (Central Market), which is located within walking distance from Tallinn city centre.
Jaama Turg is open 365 days and here are its opening hours:
