An old fashioned market hall
Once Hakaniemi was a district inhabited mainly by the poor and working class people. Things have changed, and the district is today known for its iconic building, the Hakaniemi Market Hall, designed by Karl Hård af Segerstad in 1914.
The Hakaniemi Market Hall is one of the most popular markets in Helsinki, the place to go for fresh fish and organic foods and vegetables. There are over fifty specialty stores spreading on the two floors of the building, including a bookstore, a shoe repair workshop and a fashion store.
