Cozy feeling

Small shops can be very social. Here the whole concept with shops, cafeterias and people knowing each others builds it to high levels.

This is a great place to find just about any food item you can imagine. The are two main isles lined on both sides with just about anything you can I think of. There were surely an ample amount of sweets available as well as everything from soup to nuts! I fun walk through even if you don't buy anything!

The location for this market hall is just perfect. Right next to the sea and a nice big park within short walking distance. Perfect places to taste the picks from the hall.

It is cozy and small yet it is a nice place for foodies. Moreover I liked its external appearance which looked old to spice up the surrounding in the market square.

Even though size wise this market is not comparable with Barcelona's or Wienna's markets, it is a very cool place to visit for any foodie!

Here you can find every sort of food. They have typical food like fish and reendeer but also exotic stuff like spring rolls and more. Try typical finnish fish and enjoy the atmosphere of such a big and busy markethall.

This indoor market is a collection of small shops, mostly of the food and drink variety and seemingly of a good standard. Certainly the coffee and food I had were good, and the help I got from the wine merchant in choosing a suitable wine to take home was outstanding. It's an interesting place to spend some time and browse.
