I love to visit the Kauppahalli, beside the harbour, whenever I am in Helsinki. The food on display is so different from our markets in Australia. Everything seems exotic and I would love to have a kitchen where I could prepare some of the delicious things on offer.
Kauppahalli was opened in August 1889, just a couple of years before my grandfather was born.I wonder if he had a delicious fish soup there before he sailed off to his new life in Australia in 1912. The market is open on weekdays from 8.00 – 18.00 and Saturdays from 8.00 – 17.00
