This was pretty touristy to me. The fresh produce looked good, but I didn't need any when I was staying in the city one night. I ate a delicious elk (= moose) burger at a grilli here.

On the marketplace, they sell high-quality fresh fruits and vegetables. In Finland strawberries are expensive everywhere, here they are even more expensive - but also the best. Some of the souvenirs are ... well, souvenir-like. Some are nice well made Finnish handicrafts. The cafés have...More

In the Open Air Market there are stands that sell food, Finnish handcraft (jewelry, leather, clothing, carved items...) and souvenirs. You will find tents to buy and eat your lunch or a snack.

Unfortunately most of Helsinki is closed, except hotels and some restaurants. Take a walk around city and admire Xmas lights and visit those few restaurants for hot drinks.
