At the time, little was for sale: sheet metal, wood, porcelain, glass, footwear, fabrics, clothing, animal feed, hay and straw. Many families in Tammela bought almost everything they needed from Tammelantori.
In 1899, the western side of the market area was paved with cobblestones, while the eastern side of the market area remained natural terrain until 1932. Tammelantori was paved with asphalt in 1936–1937. Mustamakkara, a black-colored blood sausage, began to be sold in the market at least from the beginning of the 1920s, and at the same time the first fixed sales tables came to the market.
