Kauppatori Travel Guide


The orange tents of the Kauppatori market brighten even the coldest snowy winter months with fresh flowers, fish, crafts, and produce. In warm weather, the bazaar fills with shoppers who stop for the ubiquitous coffee and munkki (doughnuts), the seaborne traffic in Eteläsatama or South Harbor a backdrop. From here you can take the local ferry service to Suomenlinna (Finland's Castle); Korkeasaari (Korkea Island), home of the zoo; or take a walk through the neighborhoods of Helsinki, encompassing the harbor; city center shopping district; tree-lined Bulevardi; and the indoor Hietalahden Tori, another marketplace.
