The Vanha Kauppahalli is a very interesting sight: a covered market that was built in 1888 made of and yellow bricks. Inside there are two long rows of polished pine stalls, selling everything from souvenirs, bread, fruits and veggies, and in particular plenty of Finnish delicacies such as salmon (prepared in many different ways) and reindeer. You can taste them in one of the market little restaurants and cafés.

The market is open 06:30-18:00 from Monday to Friday, from 06:30 to 16:00 on Saturday, and in summer also on Sunday from 10:00 to 16:00.
