    Like the Finlandia Hall also this work by Alvar Aalto is under renovation, though luckily operating normally inside. The famous protruding angular windows in the ceiling don't give as much light as usual because of the scaffolding outside. The white marble still shines along the atrium surrounded by shelves on which you can browse books on art and history. Following the transfer some years ago to the Swedish owner the reading selection,also in English has stabilized back to what it was previously. If you want to admire the interior in peace sit down at the elegant Aalto cafe on the second floor.

    Arriving at Herttoniemi metro station you have to walk some blocks to reach the outlet at Marimekko factory. Special discount models and unique sample pieces are usually available though many prices are on a normal level. A selection of furnishing fabrics were reduced and most clothing qualities sold at 10-15 euros/meter. The range of prints and materials is larger than in other Marimekko shops. Maritori restaurant where you can join in with the personnel is selling only set lunches for the moment.

    Every Finn has held a piece of Arabia tableware in hand at some point of their life. The factory took the historical name of the location when it was established already in 1874. Over the years the brand has stood for quality both in design and production remaining the obvious choice for a new home. Now the vintage pieces from 1950's to 1980's are so sought after that they are sold even in Arabia shops. The rich archives present endless material for new reproductions as well.

    Very friendly and very good beer shop and bar. Some fantastic local beers to try and even some very hard to find beer from US when we were there (monkish and other half). Prices are craft norm and I went a couple times as I liked it so much.

    The owner is really friendly and was happy to tell us more about the pillows and other products. We had a great time and will definitely consider the place for our Christmas shopping. :)

    International kitchens offer delicious flavors around the world. You can find Japanese, Portuguese, Italian, French and Middle Eastern cuisine.

    The popular Hietalahti flea market is located next to the Market Hall.

    ヘルシンキ市内でククサを探しましたが、良いお土産はありませんでした。 ついにこの店を見つけました。 実際、マーケットスクエアには屋台とお店があり、そのお店では最高級のククサも販売されています。 とても質が良く、私が探していたものです。嬉しくて3個買いました。おそらくヘルシンキで最高のククサショップでしょう。
    In Helsinki, we searched for kukusa, but we didn't have any good souvenirs. Finally found this store. In fact, Market Square has stalls and shops that sell the finest kukusa. I bought three. Probably the best Kukusa shop in Helsinki.

    Anything you desire connected to the beloved Moomin tales by Tove Jansson can be found in this shop. Tableware, books, cards, clothing and soft toys are the real thing, no pirate copies are sold. The Jansson family owning the Moomin Characters enterprise has early on been very concerned about the brands reputation.

    The flagship store has been enlarged and occupies now also the front corner of North Esplanade facing the park. The past year has been rather good for the iconic Finnish company unlike other textile manufacturers. Our mostly female cabinet ministers have been a constant sight in their colourfull, loose fitting Marimekko dresses on the evening news.

    Business is as usual in spite of the lack of foreign customers arriving by boat to the West Harbour next to this big electronics store. Especially huge televisions and home office equipment are selling well as people want to upgrade the comfort of their homes. As most purchases can be returned without cost there is a large outlet on top floor with four categories of reduced priced items.

    As a knife novice I was given excellent advice from to lovely girl in this Töölö shop. The complimentary knife sharpening lesson was gratefully received. The knife I eventually purchased has been perfect. Many thanks for a superb shopping experience and for the knowledgeable, patient and wonderful staff.

    Besides Alvar Aalto furniture Artek, established in 1935 sells many other famous 20th century brands like Eames lounge chairs and items by Vitra. The shop on two floors opposite Stockmann department store has also textiles like the iconic black and white Siena print from 1954 by Aalto. Kaj Franck is mainly famous for glass objects, for Artek he designed already in 1945 Toto, a series of painted wooden dolls. The second hand vintage collection is vast and located some blocks south at Pieni Roobertinkatu down in a garage opposite the new luxury hotel. The opening hours are only Thursday- Saturday but it is well worth a visit.

    The colourful shop facing the Cathedral is owned by the artisans guaranteening that all the products are also made in Finland. Soft leather slippers in an array of shades come from Tampere which used to have a long tradition in shoemaking. Pure elegant lines and different textures make the glass vases stand out as real art pieces which you could organize as a set at home. The animals gathered on the window sill seeking company are hand crocheted and tolerate machine wash.

    Stepping down to the corner shop painted dark green is like entering a cave of forbidden desires. Most sweets are sold by weight from large containers with lids to keep them fresh. Here you can also find some historical specialities like Pez dispensers and red striped lollipops. Local handmade chocolate from a small factory on the same street is also sold here.
