Can I buy food at my departure station or stations en-route?

Each station that the train stops at along the way will have kiosks and small shops located in, and around, the departure hall and platforms, at which you can buy provisions such as instant foods, snacks and bottled drinks, as well as newspapers and magazines. These are unlikely to remain open 24 hours a day (though kiosks on platfroms open very late), so be sure to pick up any supplies you would like during any daytime stops.


Of more interest to most are the local traders who often sell their produce from the train platform, or through the windows of each carriage; some may even come on-board! Most of what is on offer is home-made, giving you the opportunity to sample a selection of traditional local food throughout Russia and the Trans-Siberian routes. You will mostly find local cheeses, breads, smoked meats and fresh vegetables, though it is possible to buy branded food and drinks, such as Coca Cola or Milka chocolate.
