Unfortunately this is not yet the reason to visit Joensuu this summer 2018. When ready there should be better public facilities (toilets) and a new bandstand. Plus all the old charm and delicatessen.

It is really a beautiful market place, but they are building a parking lot there, so at the moment there is nothing to see.

You can find here real, tasty and the best Karelian pies (Karjalanpiirakka). There are also couple of coffee shops and booths with local handicrafts. It is place to visit every time when you visiting Joensuu.

An interesting market in the large square with all manner of goods and food on display and on offer. We availed ourselves of ice cream after our meal elsewhere and enjoyed watching the beehive of activity.

You should visit it on summer. Almost every day there is people selling homemade cookings and stuff. Also berries from the woods and they are fresh and cheap. Two nice cafeterias is located near bus stops.

Nice lively market square with lots of lovely local produce and of course the Marttakahvila with freshly made Karelian pastries. Well worth a visit, but of course at its best when the weather is fine.
