Description

The Helsinki Baltic Herring Market is one of the oldest ongoing event traditions in Finland. It has been held since 1743. Throughout the years, the Market has evolved to a beloved public event bringing together old archipelago traditions and modern food culture.

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.
