Helsinki's oldest traditional event is dedicated to the humble
herring, Scandinavian staple, which has been sold and eaten at the
end of the fishing season each year at a fishy fair in the city's
Market Square for about 200 years. Visitors are astounded at the
number of different ways this delicacy is served up. Try it salted,
pickled or marinated, on the spot or to take away.
Event Date: 2 - 8 October 2011 Venue: Market Square
