The iconic Balti Jaam market, named after Tallinn's central railway station next door, will move to a new location until spring 2017, when renovation work on the old site should be complete.

The outdoor market will close on January 1 and reopen at the beginning of February at Telliskivi 62, a few hundred meters away from the current location. An outdoor food court is also planned next to the location. As part of the food court project, an old train carriage will be turned into a dining car.

Head of the Balti Jaam market, Andres Rjabov, said the limestone walls will be kept intact but a roof will be built over the currently open-air market. The new market will have three stories and an underground floor.

He said much will remain the same, such as the sale of fruits, vegetables, clothes and antiques, but improvements will also be made, such as the addition of a beer hall and modern street food stalls.

By spring of 2017, a new modern market complex should be complete.

The market is popular among tourists and locals alike, having seen very little renovation work since the Soviet period. Besides vegetables, fruit and other food, one can also buy Soviet-era antiques.
