Being held since 1743, the Helsinki Baltic Herring Market is one of the oldest ongoing event traditions in Finland. The Market has developed over the years into a beloved public event that combines ancient archipelago traditions and contemporary food culture.

Fishermen from different regions of Finland sell their catch either in the square or directly from their boats. In addition, an Archipelago Market featuring handmade goods and other seasonal flavors is established close to Market Square. Delicious herring and seafood dishes are also prepared by the restaurants in the Torikorttelit block for the guests.

The aim of the event is to hold on to the tradition, and to support the livelihood of fishers. The Baltic Herring Market celebrates herring as a sustainable and tasty food choice. Fishing and eating herring also helps maintain a healthier Baltic Sea.

A selection of restaurants in the Torikorttelit block have crafted delicious specials with Baltic herring and other seasonal ingredients. The heritage sailing ships Albanus, Vivan, Olga and Valborg will also anchor at Market Square for the week.
