Fresh food,recommend warmly
Located in the center of Oulu, Finland. There are not so many shops inside, but all of them are selling different kind of goods. There is a shop offering salmon soup and bread, and so on instant-to-eat food. The salmon soup is really great although a little bit expensive. There are also positive comments on TripAdvisor website. Another shop sells souvenirs, including postcards. The postcards here are in drawing style, and they’re really pretty. The other shops sells meat or fish or vegetables. Generally speaking, this place is a good location to buy food. By the way, the polisii statue is beside the market.
