This market is easy to miss with everything in the areas but it is much better than the outside market. It is clean and well organized with numerous products available, including fresh meats, fishes and vegetables. You can also get authentic Finnish soups and meals in addition to Asian foods as well. Don't miss it and it is right in... More

Together with my wife we had a wonderful lunch of fish tappas and salmon cream soup paired with a good glass or two of Chablis at the E. Eriksson stand in the market hall. A visit to the market hall is in my opinion a must any fish lover.

Recently renovated old market hall in Helsinki. There are many small stalls offering various products and lot's of food. Some good spots to have lunch or a small bite together with coffee. Nice atmosphere and I tend to go there every now and then to enjoy something good. Place is not huge so it will not take that long to... More

Had a good coffee at the first cafe on the right you can also use the toilet if you go to a cafe. You need to ask cafe owner for the key. There are lots of stalls mostly selling food.

The building appears to have been given a decent makeover in recent years but still retains a sense of years past. Some great choices for snacks or meals, brilliantly presented displays of seafood, fresh fruit and vegetables, cheeses, pastries, lollies and more. Glad we visited.

WOW!! This is a Market Hall with a real difference. Whether you just want to wander and look at all the fine produce on offer, or stop at one of the many eateries, for some lunch and coffee, or wine and nibbles. There is something for everyone. And what a beautiful building. A must do, when visiting Helsinki.

If you're expecting fresh veggies and cheap wares head outside for the regular market. Inside this building there is a lot of excellent lunch fare you can purchase and then perhaps eat outside overlooking the bay. It's a beautiful building just to walk through and admire the gorgeous foodstuffs.

this market is located directly adjacent the beautiful waterfront of the city and offers a good range of local goods and produce inside. take a walk through to see all the local goods and there is even a few places you can sit and enjoy light meals.

I love this place. It's good for some souvenirs (fruit jams, honey, wines etc.) or a break from your walking trips. The market is incredibly clean. The layout is also pretty small, if you having a lunch there, 1 hour is suffice. There are a lot of food stalls inside - however, there isn't any free seating. I find myself... More
