“The only real market square in Helsinki”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

This is a must if you want to visit a real market square. The Kauppatori is touristic - this is more authentic with real market square cafees. Next to it there's the "Kauppahalli" market hall where you can buy everything from clothes to food. Many Finnish specialities available and excellent choice of meat and fish.
To be avoided: autumn-winter sundays when there's the "Maalaismarkkinat" market day. Only cheap rubbish on sale.

“Fun place to browse”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

The display of fresh produce, meats, and food items is stunning. It is well worth a visit for an hour or so and you can have a reasonably priced snack or lunch there too.

“Souvenir shopping”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

We found some unusual gifts to bring home to friends and family. I enjoyed the shopping in the old part of Porvoo, Finland more, but it was fun looking through the handicrafts for sale.

“Worth a visit”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

In the dead of winter this is a little haven from the cold. A large selection of local foods as well as some other products to buy. If you want an inexpensive lunch a lot of the food merchants had places for you to sit and eat. Not all the merchants were open on a Friday morning in January.

“Passes time... FAST”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

There is nothing here which will stand out and slap you in the face but it is certainly worth a visit and it does pass the time surprisingly fast.

We stocked up on souvenir gift for family.
