At Arabia factory shop you can find Finnish design on tablewear and kitchen equipment.
Visiting the museum you find the whole variety of products made in this factory. Factory itself was (sadly tough) closed a couple of months ago.
This shop is very popular among tourists.

Nice factory shop in an arcade that has a good range of other Finnish homewards stuff. There's some seriously lovely stuff here but don't come expecting too many as most of it is very pricey. You've also got the problem of getting such weighty goods home. You might do as we did and treat it as a fun outing to the middle suburbs with nice shoes at the end.

The factory shop is not too huge and can not compare with the factory outlets in other countries. But, you can buy lots of local products here and it's good.

Arabia factory store is tram ride away from the city centre. It may have interesting stuff if you are into porcelain and glass.

It has some factory seconds at discounted prices but the rest of the stuff is the same you can find in the city centre store.

Arabia does not, in fact, manufacture anything in Finland anymore. It comes from Thailand and some other countries. Hence, the name factory outlet is bit misleading. All Arabia manufacturing in Finland was ended by 2016.

This rating is for the Street Festival that happens once a year in May (I found out about this from a food tour that I took and then followed up for more info from the 'visit Helsinki' website).
This is a lively local event, with many community groups offering very reasonably priced street food (the cinnamon buns from a school cake stall and tacos made with jack fruit from a vegan stall were amazingly delicious).
There were also local bands and graffiti artists at work on a range of vehicles or temporary walls.
A great find on the day was the Aalto university art students' sales in the school... Great range of handmade jewellery, prints, textiles.... and you could meet the artist who made them.
I suggest you keep an eye on the 'visit Helsinki' website for events if you live here or are planning a visit.
We also popped into the factory outlet stores - but this aspect of the location probably only rates a 3.
