A good market with fresh products, also in this market there are good cafes for a snack. If you want to try salmonid fish, different ambassadors, then you are in this market. There is also a good tent with food from Poland, the seller and the owner speaks Russian.

Very clean with lots of different staff and souvernis you can buy. Many articles made of raindeer and wool. You can buy warm gloves, caps and socks. You can find some fine food but be aware of the sea guls that soar to catch your food and they really fly near your head. They can catch the food out of... More

Set against a backdrop of the harbour, this lovely traditional market building always looks great. It's equally lovely inside with a number of stalls selling Finnish foods. I always head for the cheese stall on the right hand aisle as you enter and you're spoilt for choice as regards fish stalls. There's a little Alko store too which is handy.

This is a place you have to see when in Helsinki. The food is displayed in the most delicate way, and the architecture of the building is beautiful. Take time to sit at one of the small cafes inside and enjoy some if the food they sell.

The Old Market Hall is a perfect place to walk around and to look out for some Finnish Food specialities. There's also a public toilet in case you need a break from your city walk and the food stalls offer some basic reasonable soups and sandwiches. The perfect place to stop for lunch.

A typical market hall, authentic and kind of small. The products were fresh but the prices were rather high. It was nice to walk through the alleys to admire its architecture.
