Fodor's Review

At this Helsinki institution, open year-round, wooden stands with orange and gold awnings bustle in the mornings when everyone—tourists and locals alike—comes to shop, browse, or sit and enjoy coffee and conversation. You can buy a freshly caught perch for the evening's dinner, a bouquet of bright flowers for a friend, or a fur pelt. In summer the fruit and vegetable stalls are supplemented by an evening arts-and-crafts market. The crepes, made-to-order by one of the

tented vendors, are excellent.
