Helsinki Christmas Market is returning to Senate Square on December 1 with number of producers of Christmas delicacies as well as cafe and restaurant operators in addition to numerous gift vendors.

The Market will continue until December 22, said the city in a press release.

Organised since the mid-1990s, Helsinki Christmas Market is the most traditional outdoor Christmas market in Helsinki.

This year’s market brings together nearly 90 artisans and small producers as well as over 20 vendors of delicacies and cafe and restaurant operators.

As per audience and vendor wishes, the event returns to Senate Square after the exceptional circumstances of COVID-19 and the lighting renovations on Senate Square.

This year, the market area will be divided into gift alleys according to what the vendors provide. Delicacies and food products will be located in their own alley, with other gift and artisan products grouped by different themes.
