Hakaniemi Market in Helsinki Fi
Submitted: Jul 25, '09
Great Travel Moment
I have been to Finland three times. It is a beautiful country in the north set aside from the most of Europe. It is a vibrant country that blossoms each spring from the long winter. I love it because it is fun and the people are wonderful. Every city center and in the case of Helsinki, many city centers or squares have regular markets. The Hakaniemi market is unique because though it attracts tourists it is a market primarily for the locals who come to buy produce and plants for their apartments and homes. The people are incredible, animated and colorful. It is a wonderful atmosphere to spend some time in. When I think of good times in Finland, one of the memories that comes to mind is the market.
