Vanha Kauppahalli

4

The Old Market Hall is situated right at the port in the centre of Helsinki. Finnish food and some souvenirs attract a lot of foreign visitors.

The red and yellow-bricked building was opened first in 1889. You can find it next to the market square at the port (Kauppatori). It is on your right hand side when you look on to the sea.

Vanha Kauppahalli means literally “old market hall” and it’s just one of the market halls in Helsinki. But it is the one with the most chic and flair, which attracts especially a lot of tourists. There, you can find typical Finnish food, such as piirakka, the cinnamon bun “pulla”, fish and even reindeer and elk products, but also a Sushi bar. And of course, you can experience the Finn’s passion for liquorice and salmiak. For example, I encountered cookies with liquorice at the bakery and white chocolate with salmiak at the chocolate sales booth.

If you are into food photography this is the right place for you. I can also recommend the bouillabaisse at the Soup Kitchen. Delicious! And a warning: Don’t try the kebap!

Opening hours:
Mon – Fri: 8 am – 6 pm
Sat: 8 am – 4 pm

    My Day in Analogue: Lazy Summer Days at Home

    Every summer, my soul screams for a lazy, hot day back at my parents' home, for some good food, relaxation, and catching up with childhood friends. This year is no different, so I went back down to my small hometown in the very northeast of Belgium to enjoy a perfect laid back day doing nothing and everything. And of course, I brought my analogue cameras along to eternalize all of these small but grand moments in life.
