The traditional St. Thomas Christmas Market is open on the Senate Square! The market is full of handicrafts, baked goods, and other Christmas specialties. You should definitely taste pickled herring in various forms, Karelian pasties and of course gingerbread house. Finnish star-shaped joulutorttu (christmas puff pastrie with dried plum marmalad) is also very popular! Have you tasted it yet?

Seurasaari Island enlivens Helsinki’s Christmas time during the pre-Christmas week: 17th – 23rd of December. You can buy from there nice treats for your self and friends.
