Kauppatori Market

Helsinki, Uusimaa, Finland

Vivid mounds of cloudberries and lingonberries, along with vibrant emerald peas and baskets of potatoes that possess an almost artistic allure, grace the waterfront market. During summer, an array of fragrances intertwines – the delicate aroma of countless lilacs, the inviting scent of roasted meat pies, and the comforting fragrance of cinnamon buns. You can find this picturesque scene at the eastern tip of Esplanadi.
