This market has a second floor with many handmade goods from Finland. It is a very nice location to find cheap gifts. We bought a fur hat for 16Euro which was selling for 35Euro at the harbour market.

I had the best Salmon Soup from the market. You can buy bear, reindeer, fresh seafood, and many other local oddities. Try Karhu beer. It is now my favorite European beer.

Lots of food but prices are on the steep side. It has many little shops selling traditional food. Worth spending some time checking out the various shops.

The Old Market Hall is a beautiful building housing the markets. The building is from 1889 and it is a lovely example of a market hall. The hall is full of stalls on both sides and you can buy lots of local goods.
