An interesting mix of food stalls in an old traditional market. Lots of local and typical Finnish produce.

Probably the most choices to try reindeer under one roof. All kinds of food stalls, to eat there, and the large assortment of food vendors to take items home. Lots of seafood, meats and cheese. Worth checking out, prices are normal for Helsinki.

The building looks great and is right next to the docks, so easy to visit. Inside are stalls with a range of fresh and cooked food, however, it seemed much more expensive than the stalls at the docks, so maybe best for bad weather.
