Red-yellow-white brick building, built in 1888 by architect Gustave Nystrom, was opened in renewed form in the summer of 1989. The market hall houses cafes, a shop selling alcoholic beverages company “ALCO”. Quite an interesting place.

A wonderful selection of stalls and market areas devoted to the selling of various delicious foodstuffs. Why not take a break from bland old supermarket shopping, and lend support to this beautiful market hall?

Absolutely loved this market. Wish we had more time to try everything. Lunch at Story was great. Portions are generous and very tasty. Well worth the visit.

Old Market Hall, which shouldn't be confused with the more touristic market out on the docks of the harbor, is one of my favorite markets in the Nordic countries. It's just been updated, and has a nice selection of cafes (the one in the middle has absolutely an awesome view fronting the harbor), stalls with tantalizing Finnish products and dishes,... More

I didn't know where my friend was taking me but when we were there I really enjoyed this little market hall. It's not too big but all the stalls are made with a lot of effort and love. Definetly recommended!

This is a nice local market, and the quality and variety of food is good. But it sits right next to the port, and that's where most tourists congregate. If you want a local market experience, walk about 20 minutes to the Hakaniemi market instead.

great place to buy fresh, local foods and have a coffee. Amazing building which you might miss on the portside - well worth a visit.

Best place to find all the best - local and imported food. Visit Kauppahalli - old roofed market. I was impressed by the wine store (be the way, not under Alco umbrella). Pork, beef, deer or bear meat - you'll find it there. Big festival of simple finnish fish food at weekends.
