Finnish market
Jul 2020
Typical Finnish Market. It has standard farmers product stands, berry stands and coffee stand. Highly recommend to take a break, have a cup of coffee and something sweet to eat. Try "Lörtsy" traditional pie from the area. It is slightly greasy and available in sweet and salty versions.
At summer area is full of life and winter much less, more sellers in the morning.

Quite busy but not very interesting
Jun 2020
We walked through the square while visiting Savonlinna but weren't too impressed. Lots of tourists clearly but nothing to shout home about.

Best strawberries of the trip
Jul 2019 • Friends
Ok, the title may not be fair, as we did not try many other sources. Visit this market on workday "mornings" for fresh produce from local farms: lettuce, turnips, red onions, tomatoes and the ubiquitous sweet peas. Also some handycraft (birch bark, ceramics, home textile, toys) and the cheap clothing sold at all open markets in Europe. Lots of al fresco coffee places w/wafles and pastries.

The heart of Savonlinna
Jun 2019 • Business
The market square is definitely the best place to visit in the summer. There is a lot of local food and culture for tourists to experience. You can buy everything from streetfood to flowers here.

At it's best during summer months
Jun 2019 • Friends
The Savonlinna market square is a small one but it's location is great. There are some outdoor cafes and you can but famous "lörtsys" (meat pies or sweer apple jam filled ones) from there. You can reach all kinds of interesting places easily from there like; Sulosaari ourdoor area, the cathedral, Olavinlinna or take a boat cruise around the lake. The walk from the market square to Olavinlinna castle is beautiful.

If you can pronounce it! This is a market place in Savonlinna harbour. Farmers sell vegetables and berries. Better to taste sweet Finnish strawberries.
The market place is surrounded by boat restaurants and cafes.

Lively market during the summer
Jul 2017 • Family
During summer the market square is full of stands and people. You can try with the local street food lörtsy (with meat or jam). There is also fresh berries or peas. Summertime there are also handicraft clothes sales. A must see Place.

Try out the lörtsy
Jul 2017 • Family
The market place is for snacks, coffee, handicrafts and antiques. The local specialty is called lörtsy. Originally it was a meat filled snack, now some of the stalls sell vegetarian, salmon and dessert (fruit and jam fillings) versions of it.

Summer attraction
May 2017 • Couples
This is the place to be on a nice summer's day for a relaxing cup of coffee and cake from one of the market cafe huts . It's also an enjoyable place first thing in the morning for a special atmosphere, and the place to meet friends, or make them. The market itself is worth a good look round, I would recommend the apple "lörtsy" a flat pie speciality of Savonlinna from one of the stalls, or you can also good for a meat lörtsy if you choose. The market just bustles with life in summer. There is water on two sides. Accordionist play Finnish music and the hooters and steam whistles of departing boats add to the sounds of the locality.
