Market Square in Helsinki

The Market Square or Kauppatori is one of the most visit and enjoyable cosy places in Helsinki.

The Market Square is the spot for freshly cooked foods, cafes, meat, fruit, fish- especially herring during its season, or even reindeer sausages. There are tables and chairs to relax and enjoy meals. But that's only from the edible stalls.

The market offers a variety of services, souvenirs, dolls, fur, crafts and clothing. Perfect for strolling, Kauppatori is open air and just beside the marina, with gusts of sea breeze coming off the ocean.

You will find the Market Square at the east end of the Esplanadi Boulevard, near the Senate Square (walking distance)

The opening hours here normally between 6:30 am to 6:00 pm Monday to Friday.

Saturday: 6:30 am to 4:00 pm, Sunday: Open from May to September
