If you are into needle felted creations, then this is the place to visit! Lots of needle felted hats, cute critters, scarves, etc. Also saw several jewellery booths, souvenir booths, and pottery booths. Several fresh fruit and veggie vendors. The strawberries, raspberries and blueberries looked...More

This is the market waterfront area. The market itself is decent with a range of stalls including food outlets. But it faces over the harbour area providing access to boat trips of various sorts and added vibrancy

There are several tented restaurants, the speciality seemingly salmon soup, though plenty of other choices. Also, quite a number of fruit and vegetable stalls. You can buy a punnet of mixed fruit for €6, and very nice they were too, various combinations available. The other...More

Beautiful old building, with lots of variety for meals and snacks. There was very little seating, and it did feel quite touristy. Stop in if you're in the area (it's not far from the ferry to Suomenlinna) but probably not worth a special trip.

As a tourist visiting the city for the first time, the Helsinki Market Square is probably the area you should concentrate on, as the majority of important sights are scattered around it. Kauppatori provides its visitors easy access to tasting some fresh Finnish delicacies as...More

Eat here if you are on a budget - pancakes, coffee, fish and meats, fresh fruits and the best of the best, the Finish meat pie. Full of people, many of them Finish - so I was told

Unfortunately most of Helsinki is closed, except hotels and some restaurants. Take a walk around city and admire Xmas lights and visit those few restaurants for hot drinks.
