Herring Market ~ Silakkamarkkinat ~ Strömmingsmarkanden

 

The traditional Herring market will be held annually at the Market Square. The oldest traditional event in Helsinki has been held since 1743. 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!”  The text is from the Visit Helsinki site.

It’s a few years since we last went there. It was not raining on Saturday so it was a good day to go there.
