We visited this lovely market in July & had a great experience. Tasted some local produce & bought several souvenirs, including a beautiful silver bracelet for our daughter. Wish we had bought a ring & earrings to match. Been searching on line for the distributor to no avail. Can anyone help?

Read from trip advisor that this is a 'must-see' place in Helsinki. Took the metro to Hakaniemi station and walked across the street to arrive at the market square. I expected the market to be as big as Queen Victoria market in Melbourne or Salamanca market in Hobart but to my disappointment, it was a 2 storey small market selling... More

This was a lovely way to get a little flavor of Helsinki. There were lots of local wares for sale, as well as some local foods. We purchased some small gifts to take home, and sampled some local seafood. There are also boats offering sightseeing tours from the docks. The historical section is close by, within walking distance.

The market square has much variety and many tasty local delicacies on offer. Lots of authentic options and very fresh quality, worth a few hours stroll. Easy tram ride from the ferry port.

Busy market which seemed to be full of locals as well as tourists. Beautiful fresh produce for sale as well as typical Finnish goods and quite a lot of cheap souvenirs. Lots of food stalls serving very good food.

We thought this area was fun. It was a big square filled with pavilions selling food, crafts and souvenirs. Most of the items and food was more reasonably priced that we found in some other areas. Eateries have giant sauté pans filled with fish, vegetables and other foods. Ferries leave for Sumolena from here.

Located right on the waterfront and very near to several other tourist destinations, this was a very nice combination of food vendors (both restaurant-like as well as fresh fruit and other produce) and crafts. Very clean and plenty of room to walk around and take in what there was to offer. We didn't encounter any pushy sellers, and those we... More

i recently was on a scandanavian cruise we stopped at Helsinki. I have never seen such beautiful produce I ate the strawberries and the raspberries and it brought back memories of my childhood in England the market is also an excellent venue for getting tourist gifts as they are very keenly priced
