A central square by the waterfront where you can get trams and ferries and explore the surrounding streets with a myriad of shops and restaurants. There was no market on the Sunday we visited but I can imagine it must be a great place in the summer months.

I loved the market and visited it a few times. Anything you think you might want,, or didn't even know you wanted, you can get here. Go have a good wander round and check out all the different stalls. I bought some beautiful pieces of jewellery, fun souveniers, gifts for my dogs, foody bits & pieces, and even some moose... More

Walked down to this market from one of the "Hop-on/Hop-off" stops and were quite surprised at the amount of vendors selling everything from Fruit and Veg to hot food, souvenirs and clothing, literally found everything we wanted to buy as mementoes from Helsinki and all at reasonable prices, filled in quite a lot of time at this attraction before heading...

Good place to get a sense of what this city and country is all about. Souvenirs, crafts, sweaters, fruit, veggies, fish, lunch or snacks...and absolutely beautiful mushrooms.

If you come on a large cruise ship you need to take the shuttle bus from the industrial port to this smaller port across town. The trip is kind of scenic and well worth it as there is nothing much near the industrial port. From the bus drop off its only a few steps to this market. About half the... More

Lots of stalls, with food, mostly fruits and souvenirs, clothing and accessories. A lot of cafes with street food, a large portion of grilled salmon with vegetables is € 10, I did not try, but it looked very appetizing! Near by many nice cafes and restaurants. So it's great place for walking!

On Saturday nights from September to December from 5-10PM the market has its food stalls open and there is an interesting music mix playing... definitely worth checking out!

Great atmosphere, there is sellers of others merchandises too but i can't talk to you about because I didn't went in that direction. Let's... More
