A week ago, my first freelance assignment has been published at Travelicious.world. I was ecstatic! It was a no-brainer for me to write about Hietalahti Market Hall here in Helsinki, as this Food Hall has grown its charms on me with it’s old wooden interior, warm ambience, and great selection of food.
I started off the article with a short travel back from the market hall’s history, from the early 20th century beginnings to its adaptations and renovations through the decades.
I then went on to featuring a couple of my favorite food stalls to visit. From the quaint, unpretentious Chilean bakery to the Japanese street food stall that specialises on healthy ingredients.
Hietalahti Market Hall’s charm
An off-track, 15-minute walk from the centre of busy Helsinki, this food hall is worth the visit. Especially now that the snow started to fall heavily here in the Baltics and Scandinavia. It’s a delight to walk your way to places rather than take the tram and have a glimpse of the snow-covered city and trees before reaching your destination. Specifically this food hall, I think having to feel the outdoor chill and walking through the the fluffy snow makes you even want to nourish yourself more with a hot cup (or plate!) of treat. ♥
A year round destination for locals and tourists alike, this place is one of my great urban find for everyone! Saturday nights at this Market hall is especially good to check out now as the stalls features tasting portions of their best-sellers and off the menu items with a DJ playing music all through out the Hall.
Want to take a break from the city’s fast-paced character but don’t want to be too far away?
