It is a typical market hall... You can buy food in it. The only "special" thing about it is the old building. The opening hours are just up to 18:00 - so be sure be there in time.

In spite of its location of a hundred yard from the Helsinki Market Square it is not overpriced and the assumed language is English even for an occasional Finnish customer. No power selling as nowhere else in Finland but a modest and polite way to let the customer decide and recommendations only per a request. If you see people hovering... More

The old building dates to 1888 (opened in 1889) and now houses a number of small shops and food stores (most of which have larger locations in Helsinki). The selection of restaurants is good and there are some convenient places to sit down and relax. Old Market Hall is located right next to the large outdoor market and is well... More

You would expect that a market place has more reasonable prices, but not in Finland! Anyway, the Market Hall is really nice place to walk around and grab some sea food.

This enclosed market hosts traditional restaurants, cafes and shops. It is close to the open market and just right at the harbour. I am sure this market is good at the cold winter days whereas the open market is good for the summer time.

Great place to try Finnish food and local specialities. Nice location by the water so you can buy food and eat outside. It's interesting just to walk around and look at the food too! As with most things in Helsinki, it's expensive.

This old market building is beautifully restored and the place to go for all great local food. Most stalls have small inexpensive sampler portions to taste amazing local delicacies such as smoked fish, meats and all treats. We tried a bit of everything including reindeer meat. Just outside along the quay is the open produce market where incredible local berries... More
