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.

Set in the harbour by the Helsinki city centre, this market is worthy of visit for the salmon and other Finnish delicacies.
