Kauppatori is the outdoor market square in the centre of Helsinki. It is great for traditional Finnish dishes and market shopping.

Just by the port is this lovely open market where stall holders sell all kinds of items - clothing, jewelry, fruit and other food items. Beautifully laid out it is a pleasure to walk through

Hard to find a place with bad food here. We decided to try different places as we did not have much time in the city. Walked away happy. From the grilled salmon, sardines, meat balls and sausage by the hop on hop off boats to the little enclosed market in the back, with a great variety of food, we could not get enough of this fantastic city. Having great weather also helped!

Between the aggressive seagulls and the milling cruise ship passengers this is a place to avoid at certain times of day. There are some stalls selling tasteful souvenirs and (in the past) I have eaten there. Midday on Wednesday this week was grim though so I walked a little further to a quiet cafe near the marina.

The seagulls are a menace and it would really help if my fellow tourists did not feed them. Please.

It's hard to avoid this place, but it's nice to walk around and maybe have a cup of coffee. Variable booths selling handicrafts, paintings and food. From the market square it's easy to take a ferry to Suomenlinna or see the Ferris wheel at All as Sea Pool. Minus for fat and evil seagulls.
