This is perhaps the most popular outdoor flea market in Helsinki, especially in summertime. People come here to sell their old, used stuff from clothes to porcelain. It´s a nice place to circle through even if you aren´t really looking for anything. The need may rise after the purchase. One can find interesting and useful items here for small money. Rumors tell, some lucky have found some valuable antiques but it will require an unlikely coincedence of unaware seller and a lucky buyer so don´t count on it.
