I was born in Turku, Finland and Turku is still a very important town for me. Turku has been keeping up old Christmas traditions and the Christmas Market is one of them. Like during many years, it has been opened yesterday again and you can visit it every weekend until the last weekend before the 24th of December.

On the market you can eat, drink and do some Christmas shopping. Here some locally made sausage, roasted almonds and lots of small "huts" selling Christmas decorations or gifts which are all hand made. 

                               This is an old typical Scandinavian Christmas goat made of straw

                  Here some home made bread with smoked salmon sandwiched for sale on the market

Here some felting wool in beautiful colours...
