Old Market Hall

Had a lovely walk through the old market hall, and looking at the local food and dishes they were selling. A very nice place, I enjoyed it thoroughly.

We parked at Forum Parking and walked here (the market is centrally located to many Helsinki highlights). Great-looking fish and meat counters. We had just eaten lunch, but there were interesting cafes and shops inside this long, narrow building just off the Market Square.

Perhaps the description is a bit simplistic as Old Market Hall. It is right on the esplanade and close to an open air market. Actually at 90 degrees and about one minute walk. This is a beautifully restored old building with an equal measure of little shops (rather than stalls) selling fresh gourmet food, as well as coffee shops and... More

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.
