  • This is a small market, but it's very nice and clean. It also has a good option of different foods, including typical Finnish food. So I recommend a stroll inside, especially if you're nearby around l...  more »

  • Visiting the Market Hall was interesting. It's located right next to the Harbor. You will various merchants inside selling seafood, coffee, pastries, produce, and other edible goods. I'm not sure how fresh the food prepared by the merchants were. Some sellers looked like they had food sitting out for a few hours. It's not just European food inside. There are Vietnamese vendors and other non-European vendors. You could probably spend 20-30 minutes walking around the hall. It's not that big, but if you want to sample items, you could easily spend more than an hour inside. It's a great spot to take a break and grab a bite to eat.
  • Nice old building with some stores selling finish themed foods. Get the impression that this is aimed at tourists, bit it's not tacky for it. Note that this is the indoor building (just behind the sail boat as you look at the sea from the harbour front) not the selection of tented stalls on the seafront, which some people seem to have confused with this. It's not very clearly signed so I can understand how people might walk past without realising what it is.
  • Nice market and good location. Really high prices and seems to be set up for tourist, so manage your expectations. There are definitely better market in the city in my opinion. But still worth it to have a look around
  • Great little shops with all different treats. Not sure what something is? Everyone was really helpful and very friendly! Definitely a must visit if you are in Helsinki!
  • Excellent place to find fresh food products from Helsinki area. The place also has great cafeterias and small restaurants serving everything from buns and sandwiches to salads and organic dishes. Nordic specialties like reindeer and salmon are found here every day. Location is also excellent and accessible without car.

Where to stay in Helsinki

Set yourself up with easy access to many of Helsinki's most popular tourist sites by staying in the city's bustling and modern center. You'll find that the area is packed full of shops, restaurants, and bars, plus it's conveniently close to both the city's main train station and energetic waterfront. Though there's certainly a range of options when it comes to big-name hotel chains and upscale accommodation, prices are generally higher throughout most of the center, so consider staying at a hostel to cut down on costs. Hostels typically offer a solid location in or near the city center at a fraction of the cost of a big chain.
