Create an itinerary including Market Square Kauppatori
Find fresh seafood, moose meat, and authentic Finnish souvenirs at Market Square Kauppatori. Nestled on the Baltic shore at the hearth of Helsinki, the market is also a departure point for ferry cruises to nearby islands. This popular tourist destination and shopping location bustles with activity from spring to autumn, with the October herring market being the highlight of the season. Try salmon soup with rye bread or "lihapiirakka," a traditional Finnish meat pastry, at one of the many outdoor cafes. Watch for hungry seagulls while you're eating, as they've been known to take food from unsuspecting tourists.

  • 5 Stars for appearance of offerings. We were on a tour so no time to really shop or enjoy the good looking food. Great day to be outside, pleasant area.
  • An amazing market inside and outside! I’d live just fine outside don’t forgot to walk around the corner for the indoor market. There are so many different stalls for all kinds of foods and items. Would recommend to anyone visiting Helsinki!
