  • Very refreshing and a traditional event in the trade at the market's autumn time. A lot of delicious hand-made and spicy seafood dishes, as well as the lessons learned from the vegetables and tasty products.

  • In the open-air market on the square, facing the port of Ethel are vegetables and fruits, souvenirs, restaurant, etc. So I didn't have time ordered salmon soup and seafood plates at the restaurant stalls.

  • The open-air free market is located at the port, and is made up of many shops with white and orange sheds, most of which include some cocido, fried fish and other fish dishes, with a taste of incense and large portions, which is cheaper than other countries in northern Europe.

  • Historical nice place, good place to buy souvenirs, excellent place to buy some fresh fruits and fish. You will wanna try cruise as well. I can recommend one for 24euros/person. It starts from market square and they have red and white colours on their selling booth. Their buffet is fantastic, chef menu is finger licking, sun deck is good to visit to listen tour. Wonderful views!
  • loved the market Square. It's centered in the middle of some great attractions. It's on the water so you can sit and watch the ships. The Square on Friday is a very nice flea market..shopping for everyone. The food market is at the end of the pier , stop in and try some local food. Saturday is for the travelers who love trying new food. There is food lined up on both sides..something for everyone. Overall The Square is a MUST VISIT for every who visits Helsinki.
  • Lively market in the very center of Helsinki. Several tent cafeteria and restaurants offer coffee and examples of Finnish, particularly marine, cuisine. There are also several ferry tours departing for nearby islands and marine tours at the front of Helsinki. On the other side of the square the power is introduced: decorative buildings of Presidential Palace, Helsinki City Hall and Embassy of Sweden.
  • Food, food and food. Plus if you are lucky you can have a nice sunny weather and nice meal with amazing harbour view directly from there. Also traditional Finnish sauna is located right by side and you can actually can take a look to it. Only problem I see is too many birds waiting to poop in your plate. But that's also an experience.
  • Please like if my review is helpful 👍 An interesting outdoor market area down by the docks. Some good stalls especially for fruit with delicious looking tasty produce. Other stalls selling souvenirs, woodcraft items, various clothing apparel. Would benefit from some additional food stalls.
