Probably the most visible thing at Meripäivät is the sight of multiple market stalls spreading around Kantasatama.  Whether you are looking for souvenirs, a bite to eat or something fun to wear, you are likely to find it in one of the many stalls.



Hungry, thirsty or fancy a sweet treat?  Not a problem.  There are multiple restaurants, bars, food trucks and cafés with a large range of delicious foods and drinks to choose from.  If you can’t agree on where to eat with your festival crew, then you may find it easier to enjoy your meal at Ruokatori (food market) where you can all get the food you want from the stall you want and still share a table and stories together.
