In the last few years the food culture in Tallinn (and in the whole of Estonia) has grown bigger and wider. A lot of new and very good restaurants have opened praising local, organic and seasonal food. There are more and more little organic food shops and bigger supermarkets have noticed that people demand local and seasonal products.
So it’s only logical that last year a new market opened its doors that is about all of the above: local, organic, fresh and very good quality products. This slightly upscale market is called Sadama Turg / Harbour Market (due to its location in the harbour).
It’s a closed market house that is open daily and stocks everything from the freshest fish and meat, free-range chickens, vegetables, products from small organic farms to a very good wine selection. For food-loving visitors it’s a very nice place to explore and get some very interesting Estonian food products like blueberry chips and Chanterelle mushroom flour.
It’s not uncommon to see me leisurely strolling through the city center on an early Saturday morning with a basket to go pick up my fresh milk and farm eggs for my pancakes.
