We caught the ferry from here to go to Suomenlinna. We liked the sheltered waiting room which came in handy as it was so cold!

We are lovers of markets and we especially like this one as it is by the harbour-side, and sell local items such as furs, elk horn products and reindeer skins, hardly a PRC product in sight, there are also many food tents to enjoy, if toilets are required town hall is only steps away. Definitely a must see.

It is impressive that the market also is open late March/early April when the weather is more winterly. It was to cold for us to do more than just pass by.

A traditional market place in perfect harmony with the Presidential Palace and the Senate Square next to it. A good variety of fresh vegetables and a place to have a cup of coffee with perhaps something sweet in pleasant surroundings by the sea.

If in Helsinki go see this place. Lots of stall with local nick nacks to sell but best are the restaurants with local food, salmon, potatoes, soup or just coffee. I love the place and I always go there for moiko. You will not regret a visit here.

The square is nice located next to the harbor and the new outdoor swimming pool. While we were there was a nice market on the Saturday. There was a nice and cozy ambiance and I had hoped that they also had some kind of activity on Sundays - but not.

If you're lucky to visit Helsinki in the warmer months, make sure you pass by Kauppatori and get your souvenirs from one of the local sellers. Then grab a local lohikeitto and a litre of green peas and head to the waterfront to enjoy your lunch break. Try to visit earlier in the day for a larger selection of food!
