The traditional Herring Market will be held annually at the Market Square. The oldest traditional event in Helsinki has been held since 1743.
Throughout the years, the market has changed from a market place to a wider public event bringing together archipelago traditions and modern food culture.
The fishermen working on the Baltic Sea will once again bring their salted herring to market, as well as a delicious selection of herring marinades from rowan berries to red pepper.
Of course, you can also find delicious dark bread in the archipelago style, clothes made from the wool of island sheep, and other handicrafts. Not to forget the tasty market food!
