I had the best Salmon Soup from the market. You can buy bear, reindeer, fresh seafood, and many other local oddities. Try Karhu beer. It is now my favorite European beer.

Lots of food but prices are on the steep side. It has many little shops selling traditional food. Worth spending some time checking out the various shops.

One of the places you should not miss in Helsinki. Tasty ingredients for cooking. Scandinavian athmosphere.

Nice building structure. But inside is just 2 passage ways with shops at both sides cf each passage way. Plenty of food but I found the prices too high. I didnt have my lunch there, instead at the Esplanade temporary market place

Have been to this market twice - just 28 years between my two visits. Not much has altered in the intervening period and it is unlikely that much will change over the next 28 years which is good. Lots of stalls selling local produce, some interesting and unusual. A few cafes for a quick bite. Enjoyed a very nice soup... More

Other than an amazingly gorgeous exterior, the inside itself too is pretty cute and cosy. There are many local and international food items inside, with several notable shops. The handmade chocolate and fresh seafood (the famous pickled herring!) were worth the money. My brother and cousins ate some Vietnamese food there out of curiosity, and it was honestly not appetizing,... More

Saturday morning- full of people, lot of tourists. Small shops- very nice offers before Christmas. But not a place where I would suggest to take a cup coffee or more- to overcrowded (hard to find place).

The Market Hall is a lovely place with many little shops of traditional food, ideal to have a meal while visiting the city. The architecture reminded me of a wooden ship. It is very nice and comfortable inside, with a lot of food to choose and souvenir shops.
