We arrived at approximately 14:20 and there was nothing there. There must have either been no market that day, or they decided to pack up and go home early. Whether visiting in February, when the temperature was at 0c that day had anything to do with it i do not know.

We visited Hakaniemi Market Square in the afternoon, so luckily there was no huge crowd. The place is a colorful marketplace, but nothing more (also nothing less). Some specialties are a bit overpriced, but if you want to try out some delicates seafood or other fresh things, a visit might worth your time.

If you really love seafood and especially salmon, you should definitely visit this market! They have so many stands selling fresh salmon ;)

I stopped here with some other students and picked up some treats to eat on the bus ride to the country side. I also picked up different jellies to bring back to Copenhagen. They offer a lot of different Finnish foods.

One of the places to go, if you want fresh fruit or vegetables, especially some locally grown. In July/August (possible a little earlier) they have the most wonderful Strawberries. In fall you can get a lot of mushrooms. Hakaniemi Market also has a lot of other vendors selling everything from home made products to souveniers.

We were in Helsinki for a few hours on a Baltic cruise and stopped here because we saw it on Rick Steve's bought a knife and a few other local made souvenirs. Also ate some wonderfully fresh salmon and one of the stalls with an orange tent

We visited three market halls while in Helsinki and found this to be the best. It was also one of the liveliest. We ate salmon on rye sandwiches which were very good. Upstairs are several shops, including a Marimekko shop and souvenir shops. We also visited the Old Market Hall by the harbour (very pleasant, but more touristy) and Hietalahti... More

I love wandering around markets in new cities and Helsinki is no exception. Having been to the smaller market by the ferry terminals, I was eager to check out this larger establishment. Unfortunately the market was nothing like what I had imaged. The ground floor was fresh produce mainly with a couple of cheese and ham stalls. The upper level... More

I always love to go to the local markets when visiting a new city. It is a great way to sample some of the local foods. This market was smaller than expected but still had a wide array of local foods and Crafts. My friend and I tried smoked reindeer and had moose soup for lunch. Both were delicious. It... More

Go and have a look in the hall at the tiny stalls offering all kinds of super fresh, mostly organic delights. It looks pretty boring from the outside but ot so once you are in. And, sometimes there is a flea market in the square outside. Close to town on the #6 tram
