The building itself is just STUNNING and is now being used as a GLORIOUS food hall...with the benefit of being able to smell & taste SO many different options! A great delight to find this so close to the city centre! We, sadly, didn't have time to see everything....so... NEED to return! A "must see" when in Helsinki!

Ideal for a lunch or even for walking around, smelling all the different types of food and watching items for sale. We had a very friendly and long chat with the owner of a stand with Polish food, amazing choice if you like this cuisine.

Great selection of foods at mostly reasonable prices right near Market Square. We had a burger and a salmon soup from Story, which is near the middle. They were both great. The patrons seemed to be a mix of locals and tourists, it did not feel too touristy.

There you can find a huge variety of fish: fresh, salted, baked, etc. There are also some cafes inside the market hall, where you can have a snack or buy take away food. If you want to buy some fish, but are traveling, you can... More

We got there at around closing time so we did not get the chance to see the hall in full action with the people and all restaurants open,. It we did get 2 kinds of salmon and sat at the water edge and enjoyed them with a great view of the city.

The best known traditional shopping place in Helsinki for fresh fish and meats has maintained its reputation of being a place to find first class ingredients for cooking. It also offers a variety of possibilities for informal lunch in a nice traditional atmosphere.
