    An Outdoor Souvenir Shop
    This was way more touristy than I thought it would be. While there are a few artists selling their wares, it was mostly magnets and postcards. The produce tents would have been more appealing if the folks inside weren't yelling out to me every time I walked by. What I thought was a local market where local farmers and craftspeople sell their goods to locals, is really just a big outdoor souvenir shop. If that's what you're looking for, great. I just wish I had known that before going.

    Part of the Helsinki itinerary
    When visiting this great city , a visit to Market Square should be part of such itinerary. Tent installed units offering food , coffee , desserts and selling fruits , souvenirs are available, located near the waterfront where ferries abound. Be wary however that they start closing by 5 pm. And dining during peak hours could be horrendous, since it’s not only tourists but locals as well going there.

    Worth visiting
    Take your time going around all of the food stalls and stalls and enjoy the atmosphere here. Plenty of food, coffee, treats and souvenirs at hand here but it closes at about 4 or 5pm. Worth a visit though.

    Well worth a visit if the weather is nice.
    Wonderful place to wander and browse the pop up artisan stores, food places, and fresh fruit and vegetable places. Being on thee edge of the sea adds to the experience. Ferries coming and going to nearby islands, pleasure craft everywhere, ocean car carrying liners in the distance. It's all great.

    Waterfront market
    Great place to peruse the various stalls selling fresh produce, souvenirs, handicrafts, food, and more. Go with an appetite and get some tasty seafood or something sweet. There are many vendors, and the setting is lovely as it's right on the waterfront.

    Bustling little market
    It’s a lovely place to visit and stroll around. Market stall traders very friendly and welcoming. Food is good value and it was lovely to sit outside in the frosty air and watch the world go by. Market stalls generally full of touristy souvenirs when we visited in March, but there were some really good hand made items too.

This is a lovely little square, located next to the water, where you can find a nice food market with great fruit and vegetables.

This was a good place to stop and see souvenirs. There are a lot of uniquely Finnish gifts. Worth a stop on the way to the ferries.
