The Market Square - Review

This Market Square in Helsinki is an amazing place to take in the sights and sounds of the city. The Market square is also obviously a great place to shop or hang out with friends. Surrounded by older buildings and with the cobblestone paths that take you back in time, this place is certainly a must visit in Helsinki.

The market here is fresh and vibrant. Fruits, vegetables and most importantly fish can be found in colorful abundance. Even if you don’t want to buy any fresh produce, walking down the tiny paths amidst the colorful umbrellas is a lot of fun.

There are also several restaurants and kiosks everywhere. Several out-door cafes dot the place in case you want to stop by for a bite to eat. Do check out the fish soup at one of these street food joints as the seafood is as fresh as it gets and simply delicious. There is a wide variety of food joints to choose from as well. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Helsinki itinerary 2 days.

The Market Square, Helsinki Reviews

  • Lively market in the very center of Helsinki. Several tent cafeterias 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.

  • 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.

  • At Baltic Sea with Farmers markets, Ferry cruise, beautiful Architecture, Good food and very pleasant people were here. Being prepare a warm sweater or a jacket for a cruise even in Summer is recomend if you get easily chill. I want to visit again.

  • 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.
